Electronica/dubstep, for fans of Four Tet, Caribou. All songs are instrumental unless otherwise noted. The album is hopeful and bright, very cool and soothing. A lot of Far Eastern influences, use of what I think is a guzheng, but I’m not positive. Try 1, 7, 10.FCC Clean|
†1.Upbeat. Kind of middle eastern beat going on here. The beat is centered around sped up recordings of the words ‘you and me’. So good!
2.Mid tempo. Vinyl crackle. Halfway through, sounds like violins swelling.
3.Downtempo acoustic song. Opens w/old woman speaking foreign language, then gentle guitar strumming and birds chirping.
4.Midtempo. Dancey, clapping and Far Eastern influences.
5.Midtempo. Vinyl crackle. Poppy, w/bell chiming and steady drum beats.
6.Upbeat. Hopeful and sunny. Pause around 3:25, then fades back in w/feedback for the rest of the song.
†7.Midtempo. Soft beats and far eastern influences. 10s of silence @end.
8.Midtempo. Starts soft, gets raucous halfway through minute 3, banging and apprehensive beat increases. Very foreboding towards end.
9.Dubstep- backwards recordings and experimental noises. ‘Soundart’-ish.
†10.Upbeat. Sitar & background noises, sound like a marketplace. Chanting.
11.Down tempo. Wound down recordings of word ‘you’. 8s of silence @end.
