The Militant Upcycle

Bloopy, psychedelic electronic track. Gentle, reverb-laden synth patterns, repeated, morphing into a noisier sound, growing more intense. A wash of fuzzy, atmospheric noise drowns out the synth melodies. Hints of My Bloody Valentine, Stereolab, Broadcast and Air, sepia-tinted electronics mingle with harsh noise in a satisfying contrast. Warm, gentle, searching and plodding to begin with, more intense, powerful and expansive as the track progresses. Perfect atmospheric film or documentary music, retro-futuristic and edgy, reminiscent of the Lost in Translation soundtrack.

Amazing Dream Coat

Epic orchestral track with electric guitar and piano. Single atmospheric piano notes ring out over an ambient wash of noise. Orchestral strings introduced with a chorus effect building sense of serenity and calm. Brazen electric guitar cuts through the atmosphere with bombastic chord bursts. Sparse but rhythmic piano chords add a pulse then drop out. Quiet section of meandering piano and gentle strings to finish. Calm and peaceful, then surprisingly powerful, a psychedelic adventure, like if The Who made a meditation album, perfect for a documentary about the natural world or an inspiring, motivating advert.
