The deaf will not serve in heavy artillery by Maina (July 7, 2011)
This third release from Maina, like so many others on this blog, falls into the illuminating category of progressive electronica. Not that type of electronica that is unlistenable, but rather the type that pushes the concept of what a song ‘has to’ be. The deaf will not serve in heavy artillery is a convoluted journey through the mind of the producer, tapping into some of the tiniest moments of the sound spectrum and realigning them into beautiful expression.
7 – 1 is a small collection of electronic drone tracks that have the club sound to them, but the ambient structure. Listen for the little things because they are the difference makers in these tracks. Nothing startles, in fact, Mire Se has crafter something dream-like and perpetual.
White Morning puts together some of the most satisfying looped melodies heard in chiptune electronica today to construct basic beats similar in aesthetic, but not in beat to some of the early Basic Printer or Victim Cache.
There are soooo many projects without vocals on the internet. Mostly because people don’t have the courage to get in front of a microphone but that’s not Marvin Thorndyke. Instrumental, and damn well meant to be, 23:54 is a series of minute long kidney punches that never lack in originality or power.
Well, I love the title ‘Sorry Safari’ so I clicked on the link, looked at the bandcamp page and hit play. Normally when I read “chillwave’ as a tag im utterly confused, but this is what I hope the term grows to mean. On a side note, does anyone know where to download the new Vondelpark?
Russia’s Bad Doubts is courageous. Pushing rhythm into Four Tet-esque areas is not task for the feeble minded. The first track is among the most intense, and one of my favorite, but the entire album is a trip that does not disappoint.
An artful set of sampling, dreamy and fleeting. It’s the kind of music that makes you nod your head too fast and all of a sudden, you have a headache. Funny but brilliant. The title track is the peak for this golden bedroom drift album.
With technology growing exponentially, personal computing is challenging the recording business and the internet is challenging the publishing business. Now more than ever, we see the pool of music and design growing deeper. But as always, the more music there is, the harder it is to find what really matters.
