Xisle - Novins (1988)

Xisle (pronounced "Exile"), is the product of synth wizard Chuck Van Zyl, who has also released numerous solo tapes. The two other members of the band are Peter D. Gulch (also member of the cult electronic band "the Nightcrawlers) and D. Andrew Rath, a composer with experience in scoring soundtracks for films, etc. More original than The Nightcrawlers, but also more melodically based, Xisle have been very active on the live scene in their local Philadelphia region. With a music based around sequences and rhythms, they've a most descriptive and unique sound, easily the rival of any of their European counterparts. I doubt any space-head into 80's Klaus Schulze, Tangerine Dream, Ian Boddy, Wavestar, et al, would be disappointed with any of Xisle's releases.
