Banai Carus new EP release on the SymbioticCube Label is called Indigo.
Indigo is one of the seven colors of the rainbow that hangs between violet and blue,
but music wise it sits nicely between influences of projects like Autechre, Boards of Canada and a sniff of Aphex Twin. The band is telling that this project is completely auto-produced. My knowledge of technology doesn’t reach far enough to completely understand what ‘auto-produced’ means, but the results sounds more human than the old school buzz fuzz coming out of the inside of an old modem.
In fact the music is pleasant, vibrant, electric and (I hate to say it) intelligent.
Not that music will think for itself (unless that is what ‘auto-produced’ stands for,
but the outcome is sounding like a well made chapter of electronic love that combines pretty dreamlike atmospheres with sweet sounds and nice vibrant rhythm programming.
If you don’t believe me, here is a video for ‘Visual’ directed by David Gann:
