Album Review
Red West
Reviewed 2005-02-01
Chill, cold electronica, done right, soundtracky.

+1.fade in takes about 20 seconds- nervous violin shimmer, more violins, quiet menace, beat slowly emerges halfway through and becomes regular
2.hesitant. plucks and a repeating musical phrase. the thumps are regular but undancable
3.low noise with a hint of tonality. Nice effect.
+4.after a chill intro, somewhat glitch beat
5.Strings at odds for a couple minutes, then a few beats, then spooky, then buzzy noise, then bowed bass drones get buzzy.
6.chill, some glitch that doesn’t gel into any beat
+7.chill with a pulse, never challenging
+8.plodding, way slowed down
9.soundtrack sadness, though cut up, beats w/reverb at end like distant bombs
+10.sound slow pulses, pods of strings (string beans?) no beats
+11. starts w/just a beat which gets more detailed as strings and piano accent
