Jet Jaguar

Sunday Star-Times - Escape - - FRONT PAGE -

Grounded (Self-re­leased) Avail­able only on cas­sette and dig­i­tally, Jet Jaguar’s fifth al­bum is ‘‘grounded’’ in the emo­tion­ally pos­i­tive and neg­a­tive. Jet Jaguar is the moniker for Welling­ton elec­tronic com­poser Michael Up­ton, who says the mix ‘‘of calm and rest­less is some­thing I reckon I share with lots of oth­ers who feel the urge to make stuff’’. The jet stream of mu­si­cal frag­ments – such as Costa, Bright Light, An Early Start and Slow Go – is so as­tutely pro­cessed and struc­tured that it chills you, like the thought of Aphex Twin tak­ing a hol­i­day in Ibiza. – Mike Alexan­der
