Its pure bliss, nothing less than fun, and smiles all around. It’s the vision quest in your eager positions without the angst to feel like you’re doing something wrong. I’m finding every day, bands on Soundcloud are better than anything you can find packaged neatly.
The vox is right out of some private cool club party, where the shine is being passed around, hidden from the threat of prohibition. It’s an interesting mash-up, with the sounds being so 21st century. I love it in fact. Derek’s got mad skillz on his craft. He told me he’s working with JRCA on an album for the fall.
“Red” has glorious hushed vocals with the gripping harmony of multiple singing tracks, layered all through the spectrum. The tune traverses some quality reflections for me. The question I have is, what can’t these Robots do?
These are the real pictures, beaming through some imaginary desert radio you yearn to see, but can’t, even though you drop synthetics to try. If you see them, you’ll find Stuart Thomas’s Mountain Range. On his first EP, A Heart Upon, there’s nothing but beauty, and these amazingly liquid silhouettes running rapid through the arms of mother nature. The way in which the sounds are arranged deliver a great sense of ease. Thomas feels what he’s doing, and he’s taking us to some unforgettable places in the process.
Part human, part purveyor of neptune electronics, JRCA has a knack for fitting lush samples on top of what could easily be imagined as a dusty noise pop jamboree, sprinkled with Caribou esque soundscapes.
