  • Credits

    Includes remixed versions of tracks from the BROOKLAND/OAKLYN (2006) album.
    Personnel: Alias (various instruments, programming); Tarsier (keyboards).
    Brendon "Alias" Whitney and Rona "Tarsier" Rapadas have always been something of an odd couple -- he from southern Maine, she from Culver City, CA -- they met after switching coasts (he'd moved to California and she'd moved to Brooklyn) and gradually became a team after spending some time swapping music by mail. Their collaborations eventually culminated in the album Brookland/Oaklyn, and Plane That Draws a White Line is an odds-and-sods EP compilation is made up of tracks from that album along with remixes, outtakes, and alternate versions. Tarsier's vocals are chilly, clean, and lovely throughout, but the musical settings vary wildly. The title track is pretty and rather cold, with an unsettled rhythm, whereas "Nocturnal Eye" is dark and arrhythmic until a harsh breakbeat kicks in about halfway through. "9:24 Cigarette" is dreamy and ambient even when the beat comes in, while the Boom-Bip remix of "Plane That Draws a White Line" brings in a rather martial-sounding beat and "Ligaya (Odd Nosdam Remix)" brings in a strong dub influence. Only the static and boring trip-hop of "5 Year Eve (Neurotropic Remix)" fails to generate real heat. Highly recommended overall. ~ Rick Anderson
