By the Way of the Devil is flat out weird, but it’s also genius. Pete Murphy has proven once again that his experimental and unapologetic artistry is truly one of a kind.
Vapor Brain by Zora Graves is a grooving, melodic, existential masterwork. Equal parts bubbly and melancholic, with a solid exhibition of instrumental genius.
A fine short collection – unique in its creative freedom yet rhythmically soothing enough to simply let play; evidently on repeat. There are certain traits within each piece that offer a clear level of individuality.
Alien Skin’s fine balance between entrancing rhythms & fragments of provocative ideas is fascinating & gives the listener a strange sense of privilege; as if this exclusive experience has only been had by the lucky few.
The song offers a supremely mellow beat, well-built & easy to vibe to – creating the ideal kind of chilled out ambiance within which music fans can embrace the very sentiments of the song & enjoy the good times.
Every song is different. But usually one of us will come to the other with a riff, or a verse, or a chorus, or just some part of a song, or even just a weird synth sound or something, and then we’ll both work together on making it a whole cohesive song.
The bass, the vocals, the soul, the rhythm – everything just works in the way that you’d hope this genre would. The band offer a clear love for & connection to the music they make, which in turn creates something you can rely upon & turn to whenever you need it.
An interesting track that doesn’t follow the standard set-up – instead creating around you a sort of experimental, atmospheric moment of artistry that provokes you to think a little more deeply on life.
Fusing reggae & electronic rock among an often heavily atmospheric ambiance – all the while pouring ideas & reflections on life into the process by means of some simple yet fairly quick, rhythmic vocal melodies.
The album wins you over more & more so as it progresses. Fans Of Jimmy Century are an unmissable act right now, entertaining & interesting in equal parts.
It’s a richness to have practiced all kinds of music, but still have your unique & recognizable own sound. There was definitely a change in my life at the age of 26. There’s something with that number.
A track you might turn to for its cool or stylish production style, but equally for its passionate performances, its intriguing presentation of ideas of dominance, and its overall sense of personality.
