Calm – From My Window

For those of you jazzy mellow triphop/hiphop or peaceful ambient fans, Calm has released a new album called From My Window full of electro fusion jazzy mellow and peaceful enough to fill out this year of bad and boring releases otherwise.

Right now you can listen to parts of it that are avaliable on mixcloud for free:

Calm “from my window” (MUCOCD-027) – Focus Point Listening by Farr_Calm on Mixcloud

Calms group this time around includes the Moonage Electric and Acoustic Ensemble which perfectly fills out the nice blue jazz from the hard synth heavy ambience, almost like a surfing waves sound or something from The Planes series from Dexter Wansel

.

Be sure to check out this Calm album ‘From My Window’ as it’s the first in 5 years and feels like a nice medium between Haruka Nakamura and Uyama Hiroto but still unique too.

Andreya Triana – Giants: A Rekapper Review

Andreya Triana’s latest album Giants, while I wouldn’t say it’s a step up from Lost Where I Belong, probably because Lost was produced by Flying Lotus and Bonobo, but it’s more of a dream pop meets RnB.  I’d say the title track Giants is probably where the album should have started, because the rest of the music following on this album is quite melodic yet peaceful, sort of reminiscent of classic Beck sound, if he could sing like a great jazz singer from the 70’s.  Keep Running, track 7, really shows the advantage of the up tempo pace with Andreya’s mid heavy range as it’s quite the motivating track.  Tracks like Song For a Friend really showcase what is missing from the album, where easily a large chorus could fill up the song gloriously but this comes off being quite boring because it’s too tame.

Overall a 6/10 album, primarily as for being far too safe and tame of an album and not outreaching in range or production.
