Listening Pleasures Episode 20

Monthly podcast: Nueva Forma Listening Pleasures

Curated by A Gap Between, Episode 20 is like a long-due vacation, if only a short one. Straight from the horse’s mouth:

This particular episode is a soundtrack for an imaginative getaway from the dregs of stress and heartache. And although I probably can’t break away from my routine anytime soon, I think this mix will certainly allow for a great escape in and of itself. I hope it provides the same escape for you.

IG88 – A Loom & Not Me
February 20th, 2012 by Nueva Forma™

IG88 - A Loom & Not Me

Sometimes, we want sound — bleeps, burps, squawks, zips, static, clicks –- and sometimes we want the kind of auditory sensation that swells our brain and dead-weds us to the measure. Sometimes we want a damn guitar.

Most of the time, we want it all.

With A Loom and Not Me, IG88′s first release with Nueva Forma, our ears give praise. Collaborator Jenni Potts grabs your hand from the start and grounds the album throughout in a way that only a balletic, weightless voice can. Intentions of a Dart Frog is a projectile, kinetic jam that won’t let you go. Bed of Stars enter just in time with the titular track to tie you up into a ball and bounce you on into the second half of things.

Then there are the brilliant clusters of abounding space in between until Coughing on Syrup Shores clangs around in your jellied head like the guts of an arcade game and spits you back out like a contraband nickel that’s just had the ride of its life. Listen for flux, for soul, for willful racket. Listen for it all.
