Kris Aroo Like some have mentioned, this album stood out pretty melodic for an IDM glitch type project. Nothing here feels out of place or too messy, and keeps the mood going at a steady pace. It's difficult to play just one song without wanting to play the entire album from beginning to end. Easily one of the prettiest and most hypnotic albums I've heard. Favorite track: Observatory.

Mike Smith The replay value of this album is sky high. There's so many unexpected varying tones and beats that my ears become glued to the music. I love everything about it. Favorite track: Absence.

Fahrenheight Nova Wow, just... wow! Quite possibly glitchy IDM at its most melodic. This album is fantastic by any stretch, and especially for a debut, I'm extremely impressed at the amazing depth and quality of these tracks. Certainly one of the year's best releases. Favorite track: Monolight.

By popular demand, Tympanik Audio finally presents Tineidae‘s celebrated debut album ‘Lights‘ on compact disc.

With just a handful of compilation appearances to his name, Tineidae’s debut album ‘Lights’ will serve well as his proper introduction to the world. This fresh young talent utilizes a clean, airy approach to dark bedroom IDM. Combining futuristic beats with brooding synthlines, stark melodies, and entrancing atmospheres, Tineidae’s sound mixture flows and ebbs with an alluring grace, conjuring images of celestial travel to alien worlds, as glitch-laden beats caress and seize with mindful precision. A dreamy excursion into the heart of otherworldly contemplation.

" accomplished debut featuring an intelligent sound. ...perfectly executed." - Side-Line

"...there’s not a track out of place...forty-nine minutes of sheer transcendence." - Igloomag

"...a totally massive futuristic soundscape of distant planets, extraterrestrial visions and colorful pictures of worlds still to be explored. ...a solid piece of art." - Brutal Resonance

"...delicate and slightly glitchy electronica works well and doesn't sound rehashed. It's very clean, quite dynamic but always catchy and never too experimental, making "Lights" work very well as an ambience-builder of an album." - Ad Noiseam

"...glorious from start to finish." - Blackaudio [9.5/10]

"...a nice job of balancing depth of sound with the already difficult to strike balance between immediacy and ease of listening. An enjoyable and accomplished listen which heralds a welcome new addition to Tympanik’s unimpeachable roster." - IDie:YouDie

"Best of 2012." - Headphone Commute
