Each track might paint the same open field, just at different times of the day. And each painting is beautiful and deserves study.
The speakers nearly melt from the next-level production.
The track selection and arrangement of this EP are great, amplified by the expectation that any sort of collection like this is usually a bunch of disconnected songs.
Both light and dark, it feels like you’re traveling through a tunnel, headlights and fluorescents streaming by. It’s up to you if you’re looking forward or back.
Little effects and ambiance, forward and backward, create and release tension like a yo-yo.
It’s dark and brooding but somehow warm and calming at the same time, like thunder rolling in. This whole EP is certainly not for the faint of heart but is expertly crafted, and well worth the listen.
Then water drops, intimate hand drums, and the blips and squawks evolve. It’s a terrifying, compelling listen.
“Burn the Floor” is a wide-open plain, drawn in Tron-like dayglo lines. The space is filled with beat and simple melodic tone that fits together, exquisitely.
I’d love to hear this coming through the trees at night. Maybe without the robots.
