Album Review
Red West
Reviewed 2006-03-04
Good comp of melodic minimal/glitch-leaning electro tracks- apparently first project of an Italian label, most artists are European, most tracks unreleased elsewhere.

+1.high pitched insect sounds, synth jug and water drops for perc. Delicate
+2.glitch sounds in 4/4 rhythm, other random sounds punctuate
+3.Melodic, catchy, w.echo, beats build up
4.scratchy record sounds, slow hip-hop beat, jazzy beatless ending
5.starts ambient, ends w/pops keeping time & chopped acoustic guitar samples
+6.mid-slow hisses and boops like sound at a station
+7.electric piano, gentle start deliberately fortifies to post-rock thicket- then quiet again
8.four notes repeat as a few layers arrange themselves on top. Good background track.
9.mellow kbds and subtle pops, smooth
10.quiet bell-like loop gives way to interesting noises, unique glitchverb, then grinds to halt
11.Spanish(?) voc samples to synthesized bongo, bass & vibraphone. Latin flavor
+12.Simple catchy beat, repetitive, reminds me of good Depeche Mode, falls apart at end
13.drum loop, live bass, middle eastern singer samples- not enough variation for me
+14.elec guit repeats 3 notes, vox in unison- in contrast chorus, end seem lushly musical
15.drone fades in, out by t:-5:00 (less than a minute), fades back in&out&in&out at t-2:30
