Remember that Song they used to play? Ugh. Yeah. They played it like twice an hour and it sounds like every other song. Well this stuff has been virtually unplayed up until now, and it’s not only lovingly arranged and mixed with all the precision of German engineering, but filled with surprises. Some say that a certain passage in the second song can come to life and marry you, but only two people really say that because that’s how many have heard it. This thing is fresh.
Now, on closer inspection, you may find bristling, staticky hums, little melodies layered, repeated and torn apart, a thumping bass and behind all that, a guy who really likes creating something he wants you to hear and who has been working on these things for longer than some people have been wearing a mustache. I don’t know, I guess you should really just go ahead and give it a listen.
Of course you probably have the equipment that is needed, a music player, some wicked speakers, a nice big room, maybe with a thick fluffy rug, a lazy cat actively ignoring you and a fantastic view with a winding river, a blinding winter sun and a spaceship swiftly descending. Or something along those lines—we can’t be choosy these days.
Anyway, if you think life is pretty nifty and you like your days filled with joy, what you might be missing is the right music to enjoy right now, and some smartly designed artwork that feels right at home with the sounds you’d like to have flooding your chambers. Well good news, you’re right where you need to be to pick up all of Chris’s work, or maybe just pick up his new single right now if you’re stingy. Well, go ahead. I won’t tell on you if you pay more than you have to, by the way. We’re all friends here.
