Since 1999, the acclaimed output of Texas-raised/Seattle-based producer Jeff McIlwain has spanned techno, ambient, and electro-pop releases, as well as film scores. Consistent across all is a combined sense of fearless curiosity and considered restraint. Sensorimotor, his new full-length with longtime label Ghostly International, finds the artist not only crossing genre but approach—instructions and instinct, digital and analog, vocal collaboration and minimalist atmosphere—exploring the dynamic between the brain’s perceptions and the body’s actions. Pulsing, melodic, this is visceral music that, per Stereogum, "seems to exist somewhere in between solid, liquid, and gas."
