Hey, there, friendie friend. I’ve got a special, nice review for you at this moment in time. It’s by an artist I really like, called Son Of Salami, and it’s relatively fresh off the street. Let’s have a listen…
… well, it begins with a track called ‘Bacon Street’. It feels like a strangely bright stroll through a city made of badly patched up electrical cables and fizzling circuitry. There’s a piano type sound, a click-track groove, some nice synth bass bwaps. It’s really funky and fun throughout, with all these wild splashes of noises! It feels like it ends in the blades of a helicopter.
Next up is ‘I Don’t Wanna Know’, which feels very lofi midi and uplifting. The warm distortion and bedroom feelings make me yearn for a comfortable rug to lay upon and some Italian foods, and I feel like I would like to be wrapped up in a blanket and for it to be winter and to have several electronics and maybe a Nintendo around. This piece of music also ends with lots of field-recording style sounds, birds chirping and maybe cars going by.
‘Get Me Out Of America’ has a bit of a lofi electronic folk vibe. I feel like the escapist romanticism of the music here is relatable, and it makes you wanna flap your new bird wings and fly off to some distant island, or maybe dance across the ocean until you reach Mars. It ends with traffic sounds, ufos, and a toy synth playing a familiar tune!
The last track is ‘If I Am A Sleeper’, and it has a slow-dance feel at first, like we’re at a midi promenade. The sedative function of the music and the sadness really come through.
This really works great as a four-track, something you would want to put on while in a particular mood. I really liked it, and the label it’s on seems super cool! Here… I have a link for you:
