Here’s the latest from ambient artist/graphic designer, Tycho. It is a guitar based instrumental track, that develops from xx style minimalism to introspective pop. There’s a little bit of Boards of Canada style synths with drums that could’ve been on Drake’s latest album but none of this takes you out of the wistful mood established by the finely crafted ambience in which it all sits. It could just as easily soundtrack your road trip through the rockies as it could your walk to work in downtown Brooklyn.
And in a similar vein as Tycho, check out DFA-signed Joe Goddard’s “Taking Over”, an chilled out electronic sing-a-long.
