Reasons Your Ears Deserve This:
-Pleasant, beautiful songwriting that you can listen to on repeat
-Great progression from start to finish, doesn’t disappoint
-Subtle intricacies of the many layers of real and programmed instruments mix very well
My favorite track on this record is In The Meantime.
You can listen here!
In The Meantime is (in my opinion) the grooviest song on this record. It starts off with a super smooth and catchy guitar riff followed by simple, bass-heavy drums that immediately set the pace and feel of the song. I can’t help but think about driving around, windows down, blasting this song while getting lost a winding road somewhere. The keyboards and quiet vocals add great depth to this song while maintaining the groovy feel. Perhaps my favorite part of the song is at 1:30 in when the distorted guitar solo starts, it is short-lived but it adds so much to the progression of the song before it gets right back to the chorus. Just like the EP itself, In The Meantime is so easy to listen to over and over again.
Anachrony in Everything makes you appreciate the subtleties of recording on your own with (relatively) old techniques. It gives your ears a break from the over-produced music we hear every day and shows you that you can create awesome music without an insane studio.
