The four tracks on Crater Lake, the latest collection of modular and keyboard synth instrumentals from Daryl Groestch (AKA Pulse Emitter), are named after satellite moons of other planets in our solar system. That may seem a little on the nose, but it's a fitting way to connect the expansive compositions—rich with rippling, droning melodies and light arpeggiated rhythms—with the inky blackness of the world outside our atmosphere and the beauty of the celestial bodies floating in it. The 39-minute LP (released on Immune Recordings) could in fact be a fine alternate soundtrack to Gravity, with tracks like "Io" mirroring the tension and fear portrayed on screen, and opener "Europa" showcasing the stark beauty of outer space.
