Naytronix is producer and bassist, Nate Brenner. 'Air' is Naytronix's 3rd studio album. Combining Nate's knack for taut and melodic bass lines with swirling, dreamy soundscapes, 'Air' riffs and grooves in the unique middle ground between Tune-Yards, Yeasayer, Animal Collective and Helado Negro. Whenever the opportunity arises, between globe-spanning tours and marathon writing sessions, Tune-Yards' co-producer and bassist Nate Brenner makes a point of holing up in the duo's Oakland studio and churning out countless musical ideas for his psych pop project, Naytronix. Air, Brenner's bombastic third full-length - culled from nearly a hundred musical sketches - captures a dramatic turning point in his work. The soft-focus haze that permeated his earlier releases has burnt off, revealing a penchant for maximalist and kaleidoscopic arrangements in the vein of Tame Impala or the synth-pop wizardry of fellow Bay Area artist Toro y Moi. The one-two opening punch of "I'm Becoming You" and "Actor in My Favorite Show," for instance, bombard with a delightful cocktail of squelching synths that shoot forward into equally mesmerizing choruses. Later, "Human" leaps effortlessly between a menacing bass riff and a lush Technicolor piano section. Full of imaginative and hard-hitting percussion, tracks like late-album standout "Dead Bird," are rendered more than just high-energy, but straight-up danceable. On the pared-down "Swallow the Moon," Brenner yearns to escape a world in which "we don't belong" in favor of the world inside his head. Later, "Dead Bird" reflects on greed and humanity's thirst for money with no small degree of self-loathing, yet is sung, paradoxically, with newfound confidence. While largely a solo endeavor, Air, which was mixed by Jonas Verwijnen at Kaiku Studios Berlin, and mastered by Sarah Register, features collaborations from some of the Bay Area's most inventive musicians: songwriter Madeline Kenney, percussionist Hamir Atwal, guitarist Mark Allen-Piccolo, Ross Peacock (synth and co-production) and Tune-Yards' Merrill Garbus (vocals and co-production). *botcave/singing light
