Made with care, a definite love for the process, attention to detail and a fine ear for intricate sound-design and melody.
“Just because you’re in a tough position or something isn’t going your way, doesn’t mean that’s the end. You’ve got plenty left in you. Never give up.”
Lo-fi good vibes and the vintage crackle of yesteryear smoothly kick off this brand new project from artist and producer L’artiste.
A creatively impressive, engaging collection, which all at once pays tribute to the tones & styles of yesteryear, and effectively tips its hat to the rising wave of lo-fi ambiances that’s currently sweeping the online world.
Blissful chill-hop vibes of the lo-fi study realm that has taken off in recent years, blended with some conceptual yet mellow-paced raps that tip their hat to the subtly confident classics from a simpler decade.
This Riemer way with story-telling, moving through the moments of the track with precision and freedom all at once; it speaks volumes on behalf of both skill and a natural connection to the process.
Turns out a lovely hit of lo-fi, guitar-led trip-hop is all that’s required to temporarily switch off the weight of the world and relax into the moment.
Sometimes things get intimate, other times they stand back and stare at the world, attempting to deliver an explanation.
A trippy yet gentle delight, loaded with subtle contrast and full to the brim with artistic intent and musical awareness alike.
This album is something like progressive shoe-gaze, less soaked in reverb, with a little more clarity, and really just a creatively free and fairly unique angle to it. Worth a listen if considerate and intentional songwriting draws you in – as well as delicately hard-hitting rock backdrops.
It’s a pleasure to hear music like this make a come back, it feels perfectly well suited to some reflective moment of cinema or TV drama, and yet it works equally well as the comforting embrace music fans often need on the long drive home.
Everything from the narrative, to the music and vocals has been meticulously crafted to enhance the storytelling in an invigoratingly novel way. It’s a triumphant beginning and one that makes me excited for things to come.
