Tim Walker I haven't heard many albums like this - instrumentals with a kind of retro post-rock/electronica feel. A little bit like Air and Stereolab, but not at all derivative of them. Most enjoyable. Favorite track: Echos.

about

All of the self-produced singles and EPs that Sound of Seventy Three released in the first half of 2010 collected as one album. Included are two bonus tracks only available here on Bandcamp.com: 'Morning Glory' & 'Christmas Song'.

With one eye on the history of recorded music and the other on its future, Sound of Seventy Three’s self-titled debut is an experiment in technology, economy, and fidelity that results in a genre-jumping album which still seamlessly comes together as a whole.

Bridging the gap between Post-Rock and Electronica, Sound of Seventy Three manage to find the commonality between the two genres placing long-form post-rock right next to trip-hop influenced remixes without either sounding out of place. The original tracks are often guitar-driven instrumental pieces in the best post-rock tradition making full use of the electric guitars’ immense range to craft dynamic-cinematic music that demands to be listened to. The remixes on the other hand explore the sound of recoded media as a subtle form of musical expression with noise like tape hiss, vinyl dust, and digital artifacts being intentionally added to the music to add ‘color’ and ‘shade’ to the remix of each track.

Inspired as much by the ‘Lomo’ toy-photography movement, as by ‘gadget-music’, Sound of Seventy Three also explore the musical expressiveness of what many would consider ‘toy’ instruments. Some of these instruments include the Stylophone, Stylophone Beatbox, Korg Kaossilator and Vox AmPlugs. Amazingly the resulting music is neither comedic, campy, or kitschy and instead has a gravity and intimacy that proves that you can make ‘real’ music with these new affordable musical tools. Just like your favorite mix-tape Sound of Seventy Three is a collection of music that defies easy categorization and yet is all the better for it.
