Stem Stem In Electro is a gorgeous collection of songs painted in psych-rock tones and timbres, minor-key progressions, and unsettling invocations of haunted transcendentalism. The opening track, with its trance-like group chorus of “we climb to the light”, conjures up a cultish hymn, with Moya’s guitar howls and washes underscoring the disquieting downwards chord structure. This sets the stage for “Blood On The Sun”, a chilling ballad delivered in Moya’s otherworldly voice, like a sedated Daniel Johnson or Wayne Coyne. The trip continues with a delicate instrumental and the tremulous swing of “Folkways Orange”.
