Forget about conventional “power music”. This is it! Contained, yet systematically “growing”, not in beats-per-unit-of-time, nor in a linear fashion, but, overall, in stage size and/or “crafting” of a particular audio ambiance; effectively embracing, even invading of the listener’s attention, sometimes releasing after peaks.
Highly captivating music, combining instruments, as simple as single chords and basic drum plates, with laboriously thought, felt, loved!, musical environments.
Congratulations to “Kelpe”, Kel McKeown! This particular “Ex-Aquarium” (2008) album I am listening to, is a wonderful and intelligent creation. I am glad I found it – pay special attention to track #2, “Whirlwound”.
