Dallas Acid are a synth-heavy dreampop trio from Austin, Texas and the first new signing to Eno-associated label All Saints Records in a number of years. Having previously collaborated with Laraaji on the acclaimed Arrive Without Leaving album from 2018, their unique mix of minimalist electronic music with a big ballad sensibility creates gorgeous, utterly compelling soundworlds.

The skygazing wonder of Linda Beecroft's vocals on the title track recall the breathy intimacy of Mazzy Star, yet draped with almost symphonic banks of synthesizers blinking into infinity, expertly operated by Michael Gerner and Christian Havins, redolent of the deepest end of classic "Kosmische Musik".

Other tracks such as the instrumental Circuit Jungle touch upon the 'Fourth World' experiments of Jon Hassell with a mixture of moog abstractions and FX drenched acoustic percussion. At other points they touch upon the soundtracks of Vangelis and other electronic film scores.
