I absolutely adore the production that Axel Willner puts forward on his “The Field” project. The looped samples and minimalist nature combined with the luscious layering and accentuated pulses that throb throughout his albums is just sublime to me. It’s what I imagine clubs sound like in heaven.
Standout: It’s up there
Favs: Looping state of mind, Is this power, Burned out, Sweet slow baby
Least fav: Then it’s White
So this is my first intro to musique concrete as a genre, and well I can’t say I’m disappointed! This is a very haunting and tense album, where the sounds used seem built around causing as much tension and nervous energy as possible. It’s a tough, yet invigorating listen once you dig into the flesh a little bit.
Favs: La Roue Ferris, Capture éphémère
Least fav: n/a
Charming little classical project that’s very light on the ears, but still packs an emotional weight nonetheless. Sometimes it borders on being a bit too inoffensive, but it’s still a worthwhile easy going listen.
Standout: Stranger on the lake
Favs: Black Sarabande, Painted serpent, Ghosts of Blacker Dyke, Arc of Crows
Least fav: Progressive Music
I guess it’s not bad, but there’s nothing truly innovative here. It feels very standard in the field of metal as a whole, despite having some impressive instrumentation and luscious production at points overall. Idk I guess I just want more from metal considering how wide the scope is.
Favs: Nensha, Day of the Cloud
Least fav: Mirrorslave
Why of all girl groups in the K-Pop scene Blackpink are the ones to hit it big is beyond me. 90% of their songs consist of the same formula with hardly anything changed about it. Stan Loona and TWICE instead.
Standout: Lovesick Girls
Favs: uhhh…. Ice Cream has some interesting characteristics???
Least fav: Crazy over you
