Thom Yorke continues his long romantic break with genre-less electronica. This album is boorish, predictable and miserable. Whilst there is a raw and earthy quality to it, it rarely veers away from his previous back catalog, offering very little excitement to the listener.
This album is so eighties you’d think it was recorded with an Amiga. It’s heavy synth-laden, gated drums and glittery soundscapes are completely lost in time, and at times it can feel cheesier than a four seasons pizza. There’s some interesting and effective melodies dotted around this retro love-fest, but it does sound rather dated.
Light, airy and seductive – just a few words to describe this album, complete with a vanishing warmth of notes and detailed percussion. Submerge yourself in Malena Pérez’s bright and brilliant soundscape, built up with layer upon layer of subtle textures and great distinction.
In this record you have something entirely out of the ordinary – an unusual electronic album. The melodies seem drunk with a certain stylistic wonkiness, but it works somehow. You also have a real mish-mash of samples that go beyond the basics and towards the stratosphere of highly accomplished producing.
Here you have such a contrasting garden of electronic delights. These include earthy electronic roots alongside seeds of fuzzy percussion, and not forgetting a flowering of luscious ambient drone textures. It’s complex, subtle, threatening and brooding – a really fascinating album.
In this post I bring you glorious game music. It features dynamic, intense, peeping good-fun Chiptune sounds, with an intricate and densely-layered embedment of melodies and harmonies. Although it’s a ‘lighting match’ scenario – the tracks burn very brightly but not for very long.
This record has a real zesty and creative vibrancy to it. It’s mixed with some unorthodox vocal samples, drizzled with economical synth stabs and seasoned with a rich spice of percussion tomfoolery. It’s a well-produced effort and has an almost Chiptune feel at times.
There’s an immense variety with the record, and you certain take an overdose of percussion for your trouble. Although there is a real lack of intensity which is compounded by very bland melodies. However, the frenetic nature of the beat agglomeration provides some respite from mediocrity.
The rhythms in this music are so unstable and insane that they need lengthy counseling. This is a highly unusual electronic album that is wildly unpredictable. You hear a world of disparate tunes to classic electronic sounds – prepare to be confused.
I would describe this artist’s latest offering as funky, old-skool squelchy synths meander along a river of eclectic percussion. There are whisperings of world music rhythms here and there, and there’s a certain melodic turnaround in the arrangement that really works.
