Ugress dropped a new full album today, no free downloads this time.
Each track is rather unique but overall has a bit of a retro feel to it. So far I’ve rather enjoyed myself, though the first song was not the best.
I think his own description of the album is pretty spot on.
Like the replicants in Blade Runner, the tracks on Ghoststorm are nostalgic for a past that never existed. Their emotions spring from artificially implanted memories. There is the theme song to an 80’ies anime TV-show that never existed, there is a spaghetti western where obscure characters shimmer on the edge of focus, there are elegant ballrooms filled with dancing dust and the contours of wuxia fights choreographed in the fluttery waves of VHS tracking.
