Let's call today's Daily Track a Way Back Wednesday post coming from Mitch Murder's 2011 album Current Events; an album set to the wonderful, futuristic sounds of the 1980s. The whole piece is magically, boppable so let's talk about why you should cop it ASAP.
- Mitch Murder has a way of transporting the listener back in time with his music. Each song off this album is a different portion of the 1980s and Mitch takes us through each scene with pleasant melodies and funky basslines. It is hard enough for an artist create a cohesive album that the listener is meant to follow so, Mitch Murder took it one step further by adding the element of time.
- Most of the tracks on the album are chillwave by definition and even though they don't have a four to the floor beat each track still has the power of making the listener want to dance. I was burning the midnight oil last night as I finished up some work and then on my walk to the train I decided to crank In The News. Since it was 1:00am I danced and hopped to the beat as I walked down the street because not doing so would have taken some serious will power.
- Mitch Murder is one of my favorite producers around because of his diverse sound and attention to detail. Each little sound byte in Current Events is an audio drawing of a time when neon and pastels hung on the clothing racks as shop employees did lines of cocaine in the storage rooms. It was a beautiful time. it was a simpler time and Mitch Murder helps us reminisce.
