Some songs are only about music. Some others are only about words. Some are about atmosphere. There is no right or wrong. And even though this melody shines particularly through its atmosphere & lyrics, listen carefully and discover the mastery of faking monotony.And yes, this is the David Lynch. He sure did a good number on this one! The original song is pretty good as well (which should go without saying if David Lynch decided to touch it – and no, I’m not one of his fans, it’s just semi-objective reality [that’s another word for statistical reality]).
It’s hard to pick a song to feature from MIKTEK’s “Elsewhere” album simply because all songs on it are so damn awesome. This one, with its subdued creatures of sound, meowing here and there is almost as good as any.
It’s lovely when an artist manages to somehow combine sound and words, without actually uttering the words. In this case, the song really acts like the title says: “low pressure zone”. This is some seriously low pressure vibe here, as in solid, badassbass (that was not a typo). Of course, there’s much more than the bass. More specifically, the mysterious, all-encompassing floating clouds of sound, punctuated by the lonely, determined keyboard touch. It was love at first listen.
