Synapse “Scientism EP” is an overview of the last 20 years of regress in modern culture. The erosion of democratic values, the abuse of science, the distortion and manipulation of facts and the deliberate seeds of discord sown by the powerful to create schism in the fabric of society; enabling the few to exercise control over the many. All that and funk... good old American Electronic New York City Funk.
“Schismsim” could easily have been written to describe the the present state of the body politic, but it was produced over a decade before. How long and slow the decline of civilization, how glitched out and disjointed it sounds. You can listen day and night but must choose left or right.
“Facts” are what we fight over to the detriment of truth. How can “facts” be a-political when so many powerful interests are paying to manufacture them? Synapse paid with human efforts to produce this lament for humanity that is lost in an ocean of disinformation. It has a pretty melody though…
The system is “Stealing Science” to further the agendas of our overlords. It’s also a very profitable endeavor as our economy becomes more dependent on automation and artificial intelligence. Synapse used some old fashioned human intelligence to compose this suspense filled film noir rocker.
“Pluralism” regrets the demise of our open and democratic society from the perspective of the frog left in the stove top pot of now boiling water. May at least in our last moments of consciousness we have a cosmic rocker with which to comprehend the folly of our plight. Synapse provides the funk for our requiem.
Synapse “Scientism EP” is on the dark side with glimpses of light; it’s on the lighter side of darkness; its on the fun side of funk. Use their science to further a funkier agenda and get up on the one truth of our oneness.
