A wonderful body of folk-baroque sound. It hits you immediately, a refreshing medicine to cure the pain of hopelessly homogenous music. There are lovely fragmented harmonies enriched by luscious violin and acoustic arrangements.
This rather deflated collection of songs feature apathetic and bored vocals festering on a steaming pile of piano bashing. However, the song titles are so inspiring (‘Organizing Meat’, ‘Google Search Myself’, ‘We Need More Vodka’), if you’re inspired to clear out a busy bar on an open-mike night.
This unusual neo-classical/experimental concoction has an eerie and disjointed quality. As you bravely move from track to track, there is a leaning onto more dramatic territory. The atonal harmonies somehow melt in a rich luxurious chocolate of colour and texture, and sound effective without sounding right.
This earthy album is full of folk wonder, the voice perfectly complimenting the tinges of atmospheric background. Alongside that you have some intricate acoustic guitar, keeping the momentum ticking along on a mystical journey through a natural forest of sound.
As far as weird records go, this is utterly bizarre. Each track on the album lasts one minute and seven seconds – it’s the musical equivalent of gargling water. It is esoteric, and often the tracks seem too short to develop any attachment to them. A highly unusual warble.
It’s amazing how retro electronic technology sound’s so fresh. This album epitomizes that – wonderful little decorations of chiptune sounds, perfectly appropriate for the creator’s intention – games music. There’s incredible vitality and bounce to this album, developing and evolving over time.
This experimental worldbeat album certainly sounds original. There’s a relaxed, chill-out beach vibe, with great rhythm and interplay between the folk roots and electronic beats.
This is an album constantly in flux and transition. The beats seem familiar but act like they belong in a different world. There’s a cyclic quality in each track. You get brushes of ambient touches with extensive glitch usage. Is this the new direction for background music?
This album has one foot in experimental territory and the other in an ambient acoustic sound sphere. It features a huge cornucopia of sonic backgrounds, which seemingly arrive in your ear at random, bubbling under a veil of reverb processing.
Tired of predictable electronic dance music? Then this album is for you! It’s so simply done but all the little fragments work perfectly – the nostalgia of simple pop structures, the Casio sounds and a truly distinctive voice. It’s so bright and cheery, like the first day of spring.
