    Bandcamp Daily's 7 Essential Releases of the Week
    By. J. Edward Keyes:

    "The Los Angeles label Doom Trip is on a hell of a winning streak. In just two short years, their Doom Mix compilations have established themselves as crucial documents of the burgeoning experimental electronic scene, and full-lengths by artists like Pale Spring and the forthcoming album from Mukqs prove the label is not afraid to embrace both the more sanguine and the more confrontational ends of the spectrum. The riveting new album from CDX (Tim Thornton from Tiger Village) falls somewhere in between. The Twin-Peaks-referencing cover art (which I’ve taken to affectionately calling “The Blue Lodge”) is something of a feint—little of Lion Cuts resembles Angelo Badalamenti’s score for that series. Instead, Thornton dishes out tracks that run from bouncy and squelching (“Twenty Two II”) to shuffling and trance-y (“Rose Gold Relationship Goals”). He manages to make all of it work; “Pet Names” is refracted surrealism at its finest—shards of synths sounding like broken glass shattering against a sturdy bass melody, while “Tiger Breaks” is almost Balearic in its rippling, expansive beauty, and “60.90 III” has all the pulse and neon-like energy of a low-wattage rave track. Like Doom Trip itself, Lion Cuts is home to a multitude of electronic sounds. As the Man From Another Place might say, “Let’s rock.”"

about

CDX / Tiger Village is Tim Thornton, who has previously released music on Orange Milk, Hausu Mountain, and his own Suite 309 label.

First making an appearance on Doom Mix Vol. III, CDX returns to Doom Trip with a full length release. On Lion Cuts, Thornton has assembled a collection of tracks that find him focused and energetic. There is an undeniable aura of joy around the album, though moments of chaos and aggression exist as well. While some artists may maintain multiple aliases that end up feeling redundant, Thornton's CDX is clearly set apart from the frenetic and much more experimental work he's produced as Tiger Village, with releases on Hausu Mountain and Orange Milk.
