Nine Years Reprise
A hipster blend of low-key guitar jazz with electronics. Slow, calm themes coupled with analog-sounding synths and effects. |
Many tracks have definite jazz "heads" (3, 6), with guitar lines veering into angular territory. Others are unjazzy synthesizer soundscapes (1, 8, 9). Cool stuff either way, but slow moving -- it might not grab you at first, but if the phrase "synth soundscape" appeals to you, give it a try.
1- Swirling, sad bowed bass
2*- Laid back guitar, slow. Starts out pretty, then gets angular.
3*- Mid/fast with jagged, disjoint theme
4*- Fast swirling drums, with even-handed guitar; calm overall.
Ends with electronic blast.
5- Slow and quiet
6- Brisk, mid/fast theme that pauses for sparse, spacey electronics
7- Eerie and slow. Starts with keyboard lead, then guitar joins in
8- Analog synth, slow and melodramatic
9- Slow and almost folky. Nostalgic chords with electronic garbling
