rounds is an album to bathe in,
This review is from: Rounds (Audio CD)
Fourtet, who is Kieran Hebden from Fridge, follow up the sublime 2001 album Pause with this, Rounds, a more beat-centred, organic affair. If Pause was music to listen to in the park all summer, Rounds is music to sink into the soil below you with, and let the lush sampled melodies take your soul floating towards the slides. The layers of weird noises might sound disjointed on the first few listens, but when the album comes together it blends together as a whole with its beautiful instrumentation flowing and ebbing towards a distant land. Do not hesitate in buying this album, a record which might lead indie fans into a new world of sublime electronic beats.
