Artist: Jordan Glenn
Label: Geomancy Records
Favorite Track: “Coda 2 – This Is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things”
Music from: Oakland, CA.
What I like about it: I like how catchy melodic fragments disappear into a fog of dissonance and electronic chaos, and how sometimes that chaos is synthesized down to murmurs and slight agitations of motion. I like how much fun this recording is, and how that holds true even when the music intrigues me to the precipice of deep contemplation. Any album with a tuneful persona but so massively wild that it makes me think what the hell is this even the first time I hear it is going to get a write-up.
