Listen: BRNSCTR Releases New Album ‘ARTLESS’
28 September 2016
Experimental art-hop producer BRNSCTR just released a surprise album called ‘ARTLESS’ – a follow up to his 2014 gem – the ‘King Brain Mixtape’, which we’ve pretty much played and replayed to death at this point.
Abhinav’s latest 10-track release barely adds up to 20 minutes of music in total, with most songs clocking in at under 3 minutes - a lot like its predecessor. But unlike ‘King Brain’, ‘ARTLESS’ feels a lot more deliberate, so while we’re missing some of the rawness (just a tiny bit), its melodies and all those little details and make up for it. BRNSCTR’s easygoing psychadelic sound is “POST-COOL”, feet on the table, arms behind the head defiance at its finest. Personal favourites include ‘SUITE A. WAKING UP TO THE BRIGHTEST LIGHT // FALL IN LUHH’ which sets the tone for the album and ‘SUITE C. JODOROWSKY // LESSONS OF FAITH’ – an understated but brilliant piece with an old-school (kind of Eden Ahbez-y meets Milo) tone to it.
We strongly suggest you listen. He recommends headphones (“not earphones”) for this, and we agree.
