Arc Vel – Lin
Munchin Beans – Hold U Baby Arms
Where you feel your ears departing your sideheads like ferries from a dock, whirlpools etc. eddying outwards – I got that feeling when I listened to Lin by Arc Vel and also Hold U Baby Arms by Munchin Beans.
To explore the feeling further – imagine the huge billowing bubbles that pulsate upwards to the sea surface; the wake of this departing ferry. Not only do you lose your eyes in this visual joy, but you sense the force and weight of the ferry. Huge. And the ropes, blown out of proportion in size, as they are hauled untied from the coastline. Ferry let go.
And all the while the sense of seesickness overhead, looming, but inside. A sway, a roll of eyes to the silver grey-clouded sky, I feel real, transported by synthetic rhythm.
Well-crafted synthetic rhythm that does its job. Disorientatingly efficient.
