Outer space is a place where rockets and satellites orbit, atoms spark, gases and objects propel against each other creating stars, planets, colorful streaks of light and silent noise... yes no one can hear you scream when there too. Datahowler has managed to fit this in a 14 track body of work where it provides an audio experience into the unknown, and provides a soundtrack to your voyage. An amazing feeling of no gravity and sounds that make you visualize what it would feel like to be amongst the stars, impressive in structure and composition with everything being played by Datahowler himself makes this album much more loved. Inspired by "1950s science fiction aesthetic" 'Slowdrifter' has nailed it and reached the point of galaxy nirvana in my ears. The way it all melts together and plays out like a movie while tracks becoming some of your favorite beats is too good. Not much music has come out that comes this close to giving you your own personal trip to space while sounding this good. I can't honestly pick a favorite track because as a whole it just works and never feel that a track has brought the experience down. The album provides 14 scenes for you, some sounding very different yet cohesive. Super happy to be a part of the Datahowler Kickstarter I am dying to get my CD and cassette of the project, but the digital album will do for now! Giving me visions of tin rockets, video game shooters, ray guns, shiny astronaut suits, little green men, and Hubble telescope vision this is an album that I recommend to all my space Giants looking to escape the earth we walk on.
I chose to not compare this album to others because it's on a rocket of it's own and it's experience warrants just that.
