Ten Million Sounds - Finding Time

Ten Million Sounds – Finding Time

We’ve been featuring fewer and fewer electronic-based trip hop artists on BB lately, a fact that I’m confounded by. I don’t know if I’ve set the bar a bit too high, or if the genre simply doesn’t interest me as much as it used to. I’ve been reluctant to give a good hard listen to even Emancipator’s...

Best of Bandcamp’s Best – Volume 2

Oh, why hello. Didn’t see you over there. It has been a while, hasn’t it? Maybe you’ve heard that we’ve been hard at work engineering our newest franken-creation: Best of Bandcamp’s Best – Volume 2. Well, yes actually, today is the day! We’ve decided to set it free to the world and we’re glad you’re...
Shipwrek - Journal

Shipwrek – Journal

Dramatic, gripping soundtracks aren’t reserved only for great films or video games. As Shipwrek‘s debut album teaches us, they can just as easily find a home in our everyday lives. Journal is just that, a log of events frozen in time and translated into music. The album began as a simple project used to chronicle...

The Symphony of Science

Artists trying to bridge the gap between entertainment and anything remotely educational put themselves in a precarious situation, whether intentional or not.  Allowing one to eclipse the other can throw the entire project into an indescribably nebulous realm – is it strictly educational, trying to be cool, or is it edu-tainment?  In any case, it’s...

Kinack – Ondas

It can be a slippery slope to make music that not only borrows from your influences, but on first listen, can sound nearly identical to them.  This is a conundrum faced by many musicians, as without having your own unique take on the genre, you stand to sound like an inferior copycat and risk being...

Best of Bandcamp’s Best Compilation!

Free Download Welcome one and all, to the unveiling of the Best of Bandcamp’s Best – Volume 1.  Seeing that BB just celebrated its first year of sweet, awkward existence, I figured I’d do something great for the little guy’s birthday.  Isn’t he cute, crawling around on the floor, barfing on my shoes. The compilation...

Ljones – Soul Below

Most times, we deem it necessary that for a creative work to be considered stellar, it must push limits, create new definitions for its genre, or challenge us to question the status quo.  If it fails to do such a thing, most would consider it a flop.  Without big ideas or fancy new techniques, what’s...
Cult Classic Records - Friends and Family

Cult Classic Records – Friends and Family

I’ve reviewed a few downtempo, trip-hop influenced musicians in the past.  While I’d love to tell you that they’re all starting to sound the same, that the genre is nearing its untimely end due to over-saturation, it simply cannot be said with confidence.  Case-in-point, the superb release from Cult Classic Records – Friends and Family....

Pogo – Wonderland

Remixes can be a wild beast to tackle effectively, and few musicians are capable of pulling them off without sounding like a copycat.  I find that the most creative method of remixing utilizes only miniscule samples of the original sounds and rearranges them to design a new, unique take on another’s work.  Sadly, the large...
