Lifetime of Love is the debut album by Moon Diagrams, the solo recording project of Deerhunter co-founder and drummer Moses John Archuleta. Gradually pieced together over a ten-year period, it finds Archuleta processing various stages of love, loss and regeneration via forlorn outsider pop, minimal techno and warm, weightless experimentation. Hymnal opener ‰ÛÏPlayground‰۝ has echoes of Eno and Grouper; lengthy workouts such as ‰ÛÏThe Ghost and the Host‰۝ recall long-lost Harmonia outtakes, or something from one of Warp‰۪s Artificial Intelligence compilations; the bitter pill pop of ‰ÛÏEnd of Heartache‰۝ has the scratchy guitar of New Order circa Brotherhood and the square pegness of Dazzle Ships-era OMD. Several songs are instrumental, while ‰ÛÏBodymaker‰۝ features Sian Ahern (Eaux, Sian Alice Group). Subtly grandiose and quietly epic, Lifetime of Love really does live up to its title: a hopeful and curious beginning makes way for a morose middle, before a bittersweet, optimistic end.
