"Thomas Mullarney III and Jacob Gossett are Beacon, a Greenpoint-based duo steeped in '90s and contemporary R&B, IDM, and bass music. Moodgadget is set to release Beacon's No Body EP, the project's second collection of songs to triangulate those worlds into a sensual, downtempo electronic mesh of lush synths and lusty falsetto. It's How To Dress Well with slightly less BMG CD club R&B, slightly more Warp Records infusion. No Body is lights-down music, ambient-pop for the unrequited, the logical result of years absorbing Boards Of Canada and Postal Service, Matthew Dear and Karin Dreijer Andersson, The-Dream and Ginuwine." - Stereogum
