Fernando Corona's classic debut album as Murcof is a masterpiece of contemporary electronic music, where, for once, soul isn't sacrificed for technique. Rife with a gooseflesh-inducing aura of mystery and suspense, it draws together the apparently divergent disciplines of classical orchestration and electronic minimalism. The result finds lush atmospheric layers of strings and piano restrained by poised micro-rhythms. Martes hovers with effortless grace, intimating untold, unapologetically spiritual depths.
