Sophomore – It Hurts – Audio

It was back in 2015 that the Swedish triphop project Sophomore last featured.

Sophomore - triphop


The latest track to surface – It Hurts – unfurls slowly like an emblem carried on a light breeze undulating around a pole.

The hypnotic, melting, electronica seeps in to the arterial system like an anaesthetic calmly slowing down the functions of the body and mind.

david shouji – tachi – Single Review

Returning with a quite different thought process to music previously featured – the Swedish creator david shouji surfaced recently with the triphop track tachi.

The only sadness in the latest reveal (available on bandcamp) being that tachi only lasts for less than three and a sixth minutes.

Prior to going anywhere near the play button – turn down the lights and draw the curtains to become fully immersed in the bending bubbles of lava lamp wax which reshape as they almost reach touching distance, only to float away in abstractions of interlocking multi-dimensional fractals.

I fully enjoyed the experimental diametric of previous material featured, I equally take delight in this far more amorphous flow – ergo – it will be intriguing to discover in which persona david shouji will next appear.

The Swedish ambient-electro creator ANNELIE was introduced earlier in the year.

ANNELIE - Teenager

A six track album of varied texture, sometimes inviting the audience to gently circle the dance-floor, else lay on fluffy pillows gazing at the ceiling in quiet contemplation.

The title track and penultimate is Teenager.

The latest track to surface being Rabbit, which much akin to the song title, is a warren of instrumentation and voice which echo quietly in to the far distance, giving the listener the sense that the speakers, no matter how near to the ear, are in a different room as the hazy sounds take on their shadowy outline.
