England based electronic group Swarms have released their new EP entitled Low Sun EP on their Bandcamp. Stream or purchase it here, http://swarmsuk.bandcamp.com/album/low-sun-ep
really liking 3 so far
2 was eh
1 was terrible
lowish 3/5. liable to drop down lower.
Their style seems to have shot right passed the sweet spot they found on Old Raves End and straight into meh.
I think 3 and 4 are the better ones, but still imperfect
nothing that even comes close to T-1000 here (or Chapel, or Flickr, or...)
is it because they've shifted the focus from the music to the vocalists?
possibly. Kind of feeling an unwelcome RnB vibe in some places. Lyrics aren't great either.
only song i heard so far was forest, cause it's only one i can find on youtube, but it had a very t-1000 flickr of your eyes feel to it. still reminded me very much of swarms
^ go to bandcamp...
Digging: Bonobo - The North Borders
I humbly and completely disagree
well T-1000 sounds like being on a spaceship, and Forest sounds like witnessing two people singing random angsty what what to a lake
I have to admit I'm not digging this or I'm highly impressionable.
One of the two.
seems to be love or hate.. and i love it
that's absolutely fine.
@omni can't go to bandcamp at work -_- but only have to wait one more hour! and @mastille you're right, but it's just the vibe i get. like i could hear 'forest' and tell you that it's swarms. then again i listen to so little in the genre i could be completely wrong and sound retarded
"and i love it"
Says the randomized name with one comment... Fade?
All the tracks are quite enjoyable but that one that starts with P is my favourite.
Digging: Queens of the Stone Age - ...Like Clockwork
It's also on their soundcloud if you can't use bandcamp
Digging: The World is a Beautiful Place And... - Whenever, If Ever
IN B4 DEVIANT
Digging: Daft Punk - Random Access Memories
It's alright I guess...
Digging: Alice in Chains - The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here
Not as bad as I thought after reading comments, still disappointing after ORE. This style had been done so much better, they should just stick to what they did well.
i don't necessarily dislike this but i certainly did not see it coming
electronic EPs are almost always somewhat disappointing, take it for what it is. and it's still pretty
electronic EPs are almost always somewhat disappointing,
Digging: Calibre - Spill
*marks kindred off the list*
personally i find full lengths to work much better for most electronic artists
i thought Street Halo was pretty disappointing, Kindred worked cause the songs were long as fuck
I find, for the most part, EPs are where the artist really shines because they're not stretching themselves so thin. I mean, if you have an artist who predominately releases LPs then yeah sure, but seeing as most don't they end up constructing better releases because all their attention is going in to just say 4 tracks
It depends on what the artist in question wants to accomplish really. A full-lenght is obviously usually more fleshed out, but a short and sweet EP can sometimes have a bigger impact.
Digging: Laura Marling - Once I Was An Eagle
There are some really classic full lengths out and when they're good they're more impacting than EPs can ever be but EPs are WAY more consistently great in the EDM world IMO.
I honestly don't see how anyone who actively listens to electronic music could ever make the clam that it "almost always" is the case
sounds like a disappointing release will still listen.
Digging: The National - Trouble Will Find Me
