Listen to Gesaffelstein's "GAMMA" Album, a Bruised Heart Beating in a Chrome Chest – Lyric Say

Chrome tears rolling down cyborg cheeks, Gesaffelstein is at his most susceptible in GAMMA, his first album in 5 years.

The French digital music icon reinforces himself as a sculptor of emotional resonance, constructing out monolithic buildings carved with darkish, glitched-out bass. But inside these imposing edifices, intricate nuances shimmer and whisper. Gesaffelstein’s mastery lies on this equilibrium.

If Hyperion was a chrome-plated monument, GAMMA is the demolition, its anguished vocals writhing to the soundtrack of his world on the brink. From the opening salvo of “Digital slaves” to the haunting, ambient coda of “Emet,” the brand new album is an train in duality. His virtuosic command of texture and timbre feels each alien and intimately acquainted, an unflinching confrontation with the depths of the human situation.

Elsewhere in GAMMA, Gesaffelstein cranks up the claustrophobia by advantage of “Psycho,” a distorted banger that would soundtrack a horror movie set in a mirror maze. And after that strobe mild headache, he bathes in its afterglow in “The perfect,” a sonic sensory deprivation tank whereby his tortured vocals float atop a chugging beat.
