You may know Timm Mason from his work in psych overlords Midday Veil, disco strategists TJ Max or most notably his long running solo project Mood Organ. The Lost Levels is his first release under his own name, having decided to take Mood Organ into the direction of his recent “Missile Silo Disco” sets for MOTOR and forthcoming 12” EP. The Lost Levels could be seen as a sequel to his early release on Debacle Records Visiting a Burning Museum. Like that release The Lost Levels trades in slow moving and slightly tension filled drones. Unlike his previous release, the album feels much more diverse in sound sources and features almost a cut and paste style of composition that reminds me of a darker Sean McCann. There is a dramatic narrative tone here that is rare in most sound sculptures like these.
