Mr Projectile: Sinking
Is it a bird?! Is it a plane no?! it's Mr. Projectile! And he's coming to save the world via his lush ambient IDM. Sinking is a beautiful release, the opening track "You Need" is a mesmerizing song with dark IDM beats and wonderful melancholy vocals, sometimes dreamy and other times sad but always engaging and thought provoking. I don't know if I could call this an ambient album but it definitely would appeal to those looking to chill out - but don't get me wrong there are some real head nodders here too! Another fav track on here is "Acting Right " which has the melodies and beats that remind me of PLAID at their finest hour. This is the kind of music you go back to when you wanna get inside your head a bit and reminise. "Slow Rewards" is the track BOARDS OF CANADA woud had made if they were from sunny Santa Cruz. It's A groovy little ditty, the kind of track that goes well in the early morning, perfect for a wake and bake. "Sinking" the title track brings back those beautiful vocals and spaced out melodies and really makes you want to come back to it again and again. This release is Mr. Projectile pushing your buttons and crossing the line between sublime and surreal. It's a top notch listen through and through, in the city or in the woods Mr. Projectile keeps America sounding good.
