Hello again, dearest of readers. I have been a busy bee as of late, because well music is everywhere, and thankfully nowadays it is not too hard to come across. Today, my musical journeys have led me to this wonderful album!
First of all. Look at that cat. It looks sleepy as hell. My question is how can you be sleepy when listening to the awesome tunes that xその宇宙に突出 has made? It’s a mystery we may never be able to solve, but hey I am a fan of cats, and from what I hear they have also endorsed this album!
20 is the first track. What an intro, almost dub techno feel as some simple but supremely effective synths come over with some groovy drums. It’s over? Wait, what? So short! Alas, it was an awesome introduction.
We keep on going. This time with dancing cats.
Youthinasia starts off with some almost static-y synths. Some light drums come on in the background through the slight distortion and noise. Then this synth comes in, slight arpeggiated and with a tone I can only describe in one way: it sounds similar to what an instrument would be called in whatever VST labelled as “Trance XXXX” or “Rave XXXX.” That’s the best way to describe it. You’ll see what I mean when you get to that point in the track. All that aside, it’s good and again leaves us quite soon.
So this next one is my personal favorite. don’t listen to me i dont have anything good to say except the truth starts off with the sick little instrument and proceeds to get even chiller as again awesome drums come in. I’m pretty terrible at describing drums, but oh well. The first thought that came to my mind while listening to this was: I should be exploring some deep underwater cavern seeing all sorts of strange and potentially bioluminescent flora and fauna. Really chill, and really cool.
WHOA! Some crazy drum patterns start us off with el komander – si senor yo soy de rancho (remix). Great IDM coming in from almost out of nowhere. Those kicks, those snares. Too good. Then these ongoing notes, which I’d almost call pads (but they’re not really pads, just sorta…), fill in the rest. And again, cut so short. Still a great ride.
I just about melt when amanda miguel – castillos (edit) comes on. The slow drums, the key playing a nice melody and then the vocals! Oh my goodness the vocals. A far cry from the fast and nigh chaotic pace of the last track, but it’s so warming and so…nice. Quite an edit. I almost can’t believe it isn’t an original.
albino tiger washes in. We got a nice cool, vibe going on now. Ambient hip hop type stuff we have gotten into. It seems this was a collaboration between faviangomezz & xその宇宙に突出.
Seemingly Asian inspired instrumentation, definitely some sweet bass with the rest of the wonderful sounds. It’s almost like I want to be silly and put a bowl on my head and groove out.
Are those open hi hats and claps I hear. Yes, it is! & xその宇宙に突出 brings on the now expected crazy chill and cool sounds with a housier drum beat and we’re rockin out in space this time! How does he make these sounds? They’re too good I say. And again, suddenly comes to a close. Still, what a lovely tune.
A very nice release! You’ll travel to all sorts of strange and nice places with this, I can guarantee. Pick it up at the bandcamp below:
