As you all know I’ve deliberated considerably over my choice for this month’s album. I don’t know why cause as I write this, I am listening to my choice and it enchants me.
The first time I heard it I had decided it was my next album of the month. Why did I question this? I think cause I approach these album choices with a different head on each time. Of course I want to bring music I love to the table but I also don’t want to bring something that brothers find impenetrable. I don’t think anyone could describe this as impenetrable but learning as we go with different choices, our reactions can be quite unpredictable.
As I said, this album enchants me. I find it a little magical. It feels special to me. I hope that these descriptors don’t sound like wanky hyperbole cause I have chosen them quite carefully.
This is, as far as I can make it entirely analogue in its instrumentation but there is something to its richness that reminds me of atmospheric electronica. There is a lot to listen to but it is not dense or murky in its spacing (or lack of). There is separation between sounds, instruments and the many vocal tracks. I know I always say this but this deserves to be listened to through headphones.
You’ll notice I’ve not linked a video or track. I’ve not mentioned a genre though my discussion of instrumentation may lend some clue as to what is coming. I hope you enjoy coming at this one fresh.
Brother Guy, you’ve mentioned listening to our albums on the way to work. This is the kind of music I love to listen to while walking, tubing etc in London. Serenity to match the mad dash of rush hour. I hope that this is a fine accompaniment to the commute.
