Alternative | Burial & Four Tet – Nova

Posted by on March 6, 2012

I’m all ears when it comes to music. Sonically, there is nothing I wouldn’t consider worth my ears. I developed a passion for experimental music long ago, and watched it grow into the sensation it is today. When I caught the amount of attention this track was getting I had to take the opportunity to prove just that. Soundcloud wise, this record in one days time has more plays than Avicii’s hit Levels had managed to get in 4 months. If that doesn’t prove the rocketing of experimental music, what could.

Alternative, post-dubstep, experimental, however many labels you wish to name. There will always be artists that act as stubborn children in that their driven to produce what not only blurs the lines of genre but makes it absurd for you to even try and categorize in one. From the likes of Mount Kimbie, Jamie XX, Lapalux, Arthur Russell, Shlohmo and of course Burial and Four Tet, these are just a few of the many talents still left waiting for the masses to catch up with their past.

My public service announcement is as follows: Thanks goes out to the late great Steve Jobs for the creation of the iPod, making music no longer sonically racist in a time when you felt you had to fit into a particular genre like a pair of clothes and not dare dabble in any others. And thanks to the makers of Soundcloud for broadening our view of music into the sonic playground it is today. Records like Nova say more than words ever will, take a listen.

Yes, you are seeing that correctly, pun intended.

This track came from a tape that was 99% garbage with one exception, this gem. Luckily I had the tolerance to hear it out, or this wouldn’t be happening. The beauty of not extrapolating any meaning from this song makes for the best feeling.

My ears are always circulating a wide variety of genres, and thank goodness some tracks not yet subjected to one. I’ve never been one to desperately cling a genre to a particular sound, or a description to art for that matter, it’s creepy and control freakish. Art should defy description, not dampen our imagination. It remains as is, why go ahead and try to make sense of it? Ask me, that’s everything art should not be….
