⌘ Music You Might Otherwise Miss & Commentary ⌘
Below are the top 5 tracks I've been enjoying
a lot this week.
Also, if you like music literature then I recommend reading
(if you haven't already) Bel Canto. I'm only 13% in and I'm
blown away - the text sings, the language...so delightful!
Without further ado, from my ears to yours.
α=f/m :: Zero
A hauntingly beautiful collaboration between Belia Winnewisser
& Rolf Laureijs.
Slow beats, fragmented echoes, and alien sounds leaves you feeling
like you're on a futuristic endeavor.
Minimal sounds rest your mind yet sit you on the edge of your seat,
just in case...as if something will happen, minding the harmonic counting.
BUOY :: Close/Open
Charmian Kingston delivers shiver-inducing vocals through electronica
bliss – ethereal minimalism made from ambient dreams.
The lyrics, so simple yet tie in as intricate as the space she uses
to envelope you, mere seconds of vastness holding on, engaging you to
the very end.
Ought :: Beautiful Blue Sky
Ought takes you aback. A sense of pure energy, glad to be alive - let
loose and just breathe...'yes...yes' (4:49). Relatable lyrics connect
you, palpable simplicity of human nature sets the entire song –
as if you could touch it.
Polarheart :: Dystopia
Get ready for luxuriously smooth vocals enhanced with youthful pop
and electrically abstract sounds.
Mary & Chris are a perfect duo releasing gorgeous lush vocals and dreamy
You hear something different with every listen. Talent and cleverness,
they made the song to stick-in your-head just as the lyrics convey,
'like a drug'.
Zara Kershaw :: Count the Days
A woman with vocals like Kershaw sends shivers through your body before your
breath even has the chance to catch up.
At 2:28 that deep, dragging tempo ignites! Blazing beats and radiant
synths awaken – reach your memory by elevated lyrics relating to the
feeling of that 'monster' we all encounter.
