Triphop with a pintch of jazzy sound, dub echos, you know, head music thing. 2017 deluxe edition comes with 4 extra tracks.
I’ve been stashing this one for a long time without posting here. I re-listened it a few times to have a better idea how to put it. It is psychedelic rock, but very accessible, kind of pop-flavoured but in a good sense. There is this thing like I have heard many of these tunes before—probably they are playing on the twists and hooks of the genre pretty well.
Diverse electronic music on hiphop speed, with mostly broken beats, basslines, wondering and moody melodies. Could say it’s triphop.
This is eerie techno. Like the haunted house on the top of the hill reaching out of the foggy path leading up to it. But with mystic neon-glowing steroids that turned everyone into robot werewolf mutants inside. There are black-eyed floating children on the front porch wearing white nightgowns and staring at you without any blinks as you approach. You hear the techno’s faint thumping through the closed doors like you feel your heartbeat in your throat. The doorframe illuminates with flickering light from inside. And you reach for the doorknob.
Some ambient, some downbeat, some mid-tempo, few upbeat, listening pleasures, chill, peace of mind.
Hiphopish, glitchy, brainfeederish, ninjatuney. Not foreground music, not dancefloor music. Background thing but not at all elevator music.
It’s a short thing. But it’s kind of a smash.
According to its premise this is supposed to score the universe with music from before the boom to the infinite future. Beautiful, atmospheric, inspiring.
It is a soundtrack to a tv series, but it is not released as a soundtrack. So this is a Clark album in its own right, but is a soundtrack nonetheless. It is the soundtrack to a snowfall on a gloomy dark dawn. To a ship sailing out into the vast ocean and breaking ice on the go. It is the soundtrack to its sinking and hitting rock bottom. And to the sunshine that glides through the water and reaches the masthead of named ship waving goodbye.
Ambient electronic sci-fi soundtrack with light bokeh and spaceships. In a city. With rain.
