(Pretty Cool Stuff For Beginners)
Indie, Lounge, Psychedelic rock
Chemical Brothers, Moby, Gorillas
If you are looking for a unique instrumental lounge and experimental album, check this one out. Hailing from the Netherlands, this solo Moby-like instrumentalist has some impressive talent. The use of trumpet, techno and guitar provides for a somewhat carnival like feel mixed with some acid hallucinogenic undertones.
The first track, "This Side Up", is a catchy tune reminding us of Glueleg meets some 70's gameshow... love the intertwined guitar work on this one. The album is filled with other styles of music including folk, trance, rock, country twang, jazz and club music, so the album does not disappoint on the variety front. Track seven "Summit Window" empowers the use of unique acoustic guitar and has a base line that reminds us of the Gorillas. There are 18 tracks on this one and a very nice debut that actually is 'Pretty Cool Stuff For Beginners'.
