Wow...I feel drained. This is some very effective disturbing, unsettling, and emotional post rock ambience. This is a pretty dark listen. Hauntingly beautiful. ‘Deathbed’ has got to be one of the most upsetting songs I’ve heard all year - in a good way (I think...). If you want to have an existential crisis, look no further. I don’t think I’ll be coming back to this soon, not because it was bad, but because I’m not emotionally up for it.
This is a BEAUTIFUL, personal, and loose high quality rainy day album. This sounds like a well produced sort of ‘acoustic psychedelic shoegaze’. I love the twinkly simplistic instrumentation on guitar and piano. The sad mood of this release is palpable. The pace of this is SO good, I went into each track expecting something completely different than what I got. The slow reveal of this album is incredibly enjoyable to listen to.
This electronic release’s main feature is its delightfully disgusting synth tones. The production on this is so crisp! Unfortunately, this just didn’t click with me, there wasn’t much for me to latch on to. The melodies were easily forgettable and aimless, but enjoyable enough.
Ratings are based on:
-the technical skill of the artist
-the lyrical content (if applicable)
-the overall coherence and completeness of the project
-the emotional impact
-the effectiveness of the storytelling and/or mood setting
-how long it stays with me and my personal enjoyment
