If you have followed the blog from the beginning you may know I post Loscil on a consistent basis. Yesterday he posted a small EP via his bandcamp that included this gem called Gallium. I can only describe the sound as the feeling you get when you start swinging on a swing set but in slow motion and instead of a playground imagine yourself in a cave.
I am ADDICTED to this beginning song by Small Black, the intro melody gives me goosebumps, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED ALBUM PURCHASE.
Many of the chillwave artists such as Houses are spinning out of the very enjoyable yet highly bashed genre. There are some interesting and beautiful pieces of lo-fi work as a result. One thing I realized after hearing this song, i’m a sucker for woodblocks with echo.
Its new Tim Hecker with Destroyer on vocals. The reaction I have after listening is that I wish there was more music like this, its a well crafted idea that could go horribly bad but these 2 talents make it work.
