article imageReview: Good for techno listeners, just needs less auto tune

By Wesley Butler     Apr 26, 2014 in Entertainment
New York - New York City solo artist Tachyon creates disco-infused dance/pop music that’s recommended for fans of Daft Punk, Passion Pit and Fun.
Tachyon has played the Big Apple Indie Music Industrial Showcase, signed a licensing contract with Nickelodeon, and opened for Wu Tang Clan's Cappadonna.
“My inspiration comes from my past tumultuous relationships, an alternating sustained childlike idealism with dark cynicism, and I guess a little nerdiness combined with dramatic flamboyance liberated by dance/trance rhythms.” says Jonathan Arons.
However, there are a few technical issues with this album.
Circles would be a catchy little disco track if it wasn’t for the copious amounts of over-egged vocal manipulation techniques and almost cringe-worthy levels of Auto-Tune.
Meanwhile, on Aliens, the vocals and music sound like they’re from two completely different songs, while Made Dreams somehow segues from Imagine Dragons-esque electro-indie to something more closely resembling a marching band, all while Arons howls over it with a truly awful vocal performance.
Why Did I Leave You is a pretty good funk track (if you discount the vocals, lyrics and pretty much everything else), but these are too few and far between, and overall, for a pair of as highly esteemed artists as Tachyon.
Overall, the album seeks to impress techno listeners, but there needs to less auto-tune.
