"Midnight Black Indulgence" CD
Genre: electronic, minimal house
something i noticed with frivolous'
midnight black indulgence: it needs good speakers. i guess this is
true for any quality music, but this record is all about the nuances.
frivolous lays down some really gnarly tracks here, balancing
beat and melody perfectly, but headphones are really ideal to pick up
every little click and cut in each song. out on stefan betke's
~scape label, this features some truly inspired electronic pieces -
"me and my social anxiety" and "goodbye regrets" are truly the best of
the more danceable tracks; the latter wouldn't sound out of place in
plaid's discography. while lengthy anti-hipster
diatribe-cum-dance-track "sooo savey" is a bit stale, moving "high on
the plateau" and "perle moon" make up for it. and the inclusion of
intergalactic lounge crooner anthems "the long way..." (amazing) and
"you gotta sing" even out this strange record perfectly. my word of
advice: take this frivolous trip, and play it loud.
