The Sprawl features five songs by Amygdala (Andreas Riemer Christensen), a Danish producer inspired by physiological psychology, science, and cyberpunk. The amygdalæ are a set of almond-shaped nuclei buried deep within the temporal lobes of the human brain that are involved in processing memory and emotional responses. Designed for inner exploration of imaginary intergalactic science fictional futures, Amygdala’s music is influenced most prominently by early Eat Static, Transwave, System 7, and Koxbox. The resulting style can be described as old school, progressive, psychedelic and techy, but every song is its own story crafted to entrance and enthrall the listener.
