Recently generating a lot of noise, Vienna born/London based producer S O H N has entrapped me in his dark web. The track "Warnings" conjures up strong similarities between The Weeknd and S O H N. It is fitting that the line, "If it comes back to haunt us," figures prominently and repetitively in the song. Throughout the course of the days after first hearing S O H N, I often found myself on runs feeling helpless with the "The Wheel" running through my head, desperately wishing I could listen to the song. "The Wheel" also opens with one of the most chilling lines I have heard in a while: "I died a week ago/ There's nothing left/ It's caught on video/ The very last breath/ The very last breath." Delicate is the only word I can think of to describe his vocals and lyrics. As in "Warnings", verdant background instrumentation lulls the listener into a state devoid of reality in "The Wheel" and "Oscillate". Make sure to keep an eye out for the official release of "The Wheel" on Aesop November, 5. Happy listening.
At the end of what seemed like a fruitless search, I finally stumbled upon a gem in "You Can Yell." Astronauts, etc. (project of Berkeley based Anthony Ferraro) bears an eerie resemblance to my favorite collaboration of CSLSX and I Break Horses. Beginning with reverb heavy guitar, the beat drops with hushed vocals and crescendos before dropping into a distorted chorus. I have a lot going on tomorrow so I am required to stay in tonight and this track makes the time go by just a little bit easier.
