This is worth a listen for anyone interested in the power of music, of ambient music in general, and particularly those who are naturally drawn to classical music but are seeking out something fresh & unusual.
The performance feels like a race down a highway, almost like Race to Neptune know they have the listener by the ears & can take you past your comfort zone. Abandon fashion, forget reservations & dance to this amazing EP while your brain races to the stars.
The craftsmanship is where the strength lies, this is a piece of audio to be experienced – the movement carries you along, the ideas provoke deep thought, and all in all you get that authentic, alternative trip-hop edge that is all too absent from mainstream music of late.
These songs that make up the collection are beautifully well produced & also hit in the way that any superb & memorable song should. There’s plenty more to appreciate on top of this as the project plays out.
The guitar work is perfect, simple yet effective, instantly recognisable after even just a single listen. Soon enough, the song’s lyrics start to take hold, sinking in with the emotional depth of something incredibly real & heartfelt.
His music woks in the same way regardless of how it’s set up, so you get that heartfelt story-telling, that personal touch, in among a lot that is varied & forever interesting.
Poetic songs of deep thought, self doubt & reflections on modern life make-up the playlist for Jeffrey Dallet’s album Abnormal Oddities. What pours through is a folk-rock explosion of melodies & upbeat energy.
It’s not all that often I’m blown away by how uniquely unexpected an artist’s sound is. Perhaps it’s that Can’t Buy Love was the opener – a brilliant song, gorgeously atmospheric, openly sentimental, funky & quirky in a subtle but cool way.
