The ReWind series exists as merely an aid in the discovery (or rather, rediscovery) of the unintentionally forgotten, or the often overlooked tracks of yesteryear.
Long time readers (if such people exist) will be aware that ReWind is reserved for featuring tracks that have perhaps been either forgotten or just generally overlooked due to the fast paced rhythm of everyday life. That said, since we’re hitting a round number in the series, I thought it would be interesting to feature an entire album for a change. 🙂
As it turns out, browsing the comments section of videos on Youtube isn’t always an experience full of negativity and outright confusion, but might just have a positive outcome from time to time. You’ve no doubt been able to decipher that this positive outcome is Sorry Pluto, an 8 track long player by Swedish producer Andreas Lindholm that we’re taking a look at today.
This body of work beautifully represents the ambient / psychill side of electronic music, so the choice of space as a main theme was the right one to go with. In the days leading up to its feature post, I’ve been listening and relistening to this very well put together musical journey through space, one that starts with Mercury, thorugh Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturnus, Uranus and finishes off in style on Neptune. As hinted by the name, Pluto, sadly, does not make an appearance, but the other 8 productions more than make up for its absence.
High energy, high bpm tracks are awesome, don’t get me wrong, but sometimes you just have to take it slower and relax a little, and this album is a great soundtrack for such occasions. I honestly didn’t know what to expect when I first read the comment pointing me towards the album preview, but as minutes ticked by and Sorry Pluto unfolded, I realized sharing this one with you people was a must.
All 8 productions are unique in their own special way, but as is often the case, one does stand out, and for me it has been Venus. Not sure if it’s the melody or the vocal chops, though that is not important. What matters is that while track 2 may be my personal favourite, there’s plenty more for you to choose form the bunch, a choice I invite you to make after listening to the playlist below.
Oh yeah, one more thing: the album itself is free to download via Andreas’ Bandcamp page, but if you so desire, and if you enjoy the album, there’s nothing stopping you from supporting the artist. There’s another album on the way, but that’s a discussion for a different time. 🙂
See you next week. 🙂
