Whilst putting the finishing touches to my next release I wanted to make a conscious effort to share music from other artists that I have been really enjoying listening too.
Recently I have been listening to Piety of Ashes by The Flashbulb, which is such a beautiful electronic album. Benn Jordan really excels at delivering a record which knows when to be minimal and when to have layers.
He manages to blend traditional instruments and electronic sounds together to keep each track fresh and interesting, such as Hypothesis where a choir is used alongside bouncey Rhodes-style keyboard parts.
The movement between different ideas and parts is sometimes subtle and sometimes drastic but in both cases keeps you interested and when repetitive parts are used they do not become stale quickly like with many electronic tracks.
You can hear the album on Spotify here:
Or buy it on bandcamp here:
