So the third one arrived, it’s like one every second year in the past six. This one’s the result of the Lost Themes and its sequels becoming so popular that he started touring and writing more new music with some family of his (son and grandson). And this is great! The Lost Themes II didn’t strike a cord with me so much to make a note here but this one is here again. I can so imagine the pictures for this sound but as standalone music it is also wonderful, cinematic. Honestly, there’s not much groundbreaking for a Carpenter album but it delivers its promise just fine, very well worth the time and attention.
Most of this is too experimental for why I follow their work, but The Unclouded Day is a nice piece.
That is one disturbing album cover. The music is by one half of Fuck Buttons, Benjamin John Power. Although this is a solo project the tone and style is pretty much similar with power noise layers and heavy structures.
I normally don’t write about stuff that I didn’t like, but I just like the concept of this album, i.e. remixing Carpenter soundtracks. However this one performs way below my expectations. Good album cover though.
