Skillfully uniting the strength of EDM with a clear understanding of effective sound-design, and indeed songwriting, ImButcher has crafted something of a masterpiece with this album.
The aptly titled Tiger Is My Name takes you captive from the offset, providing the perfect half-hour environment in which your mind can wander freely and calmly to realms outside of the daily rat race.
Not only do the band offer precisely the authentic rock qualities of yesteryear – the grit, the skill, the melody, the passion – their songwriting in this case is brilliantly fascinating.
The seven-minute epic and blissful journey that is Belladonna kicks off this ambient collection of finely crafted escapism from ImButcher. This entire playlist soon proves itself to be a worthy choice for any evening of introspection or togetherness alike.
The song is humble, not trying to be anything other than what it needs to be, and in doing this – it introduces the artist behind it in a respectable, endearing & interesting way.
An ethereal & enigmatic work of mastery. There’s a point between musical creation & finding a backdoor hack into the human psyche that Miyuki has somehow mastered.
The duo offer soft, soulful deliveries of this gently expressive & poetic bit of writing. It’s not a song that needs bold levels of volume, it’s one that works effectively on its own raw emotion & intentions
The music moves you, every song has some sort of emotional effect, which by the end leaves you feeling as if you’ve just completely re-evaluated your existence & are ready to take steps in a new direction.
The music remains organic & real sounding, with a certain softness that gently ushers you into a dream-like state; a feeling of being in some far away land.
