Closer, Monsoon

closr_monsCloser lays down four tracks in this short offering, and I can’t say it raises more than a shrug from me. Melodic electronica with everything wrapped in a thin gauze of white noise. “Leak” tries to add some club heaviness with leaden beats. “Typhoon” goes for brighter tones, but when it switches to thick, rumbling chords, they’re dialed back too far to make any impact. Maybe it’s the artist’s intention to deflate the usual weightiness of this sort of music, but it feels like nothing here strives to impress. It’s content to hiss, sing a little, and go on its way. A pass for me, but take a listen and form your own thoughts.

Available at Bandcamp.
