L.A. Takedown - Our Feeling of Natural High

Arcade Sound


£11.50




Description

When L.A. Takedown hovers over one’s ear hairs for the
first time, so much is communicated without a word—there
are patient, capable hands at the wheel as one phantoms
through a neon Los Angeles of the mind, a Los Angeles
that only three harmonized electric guitars can conjure,
with a sunset so infinitely variegated in color that only
synthetic washes of synth could serve as a fainting couch.
Studio magic dust seems to drip off these android dreams
projected against the wall—in person it defies logic that such
a sound is coming from humans, but, watching their hands,
it’s unmistakable—these are calm warriors sallying forth
these sweeping, swooning epics, crowned with triumphant
tripartite thunderbolts of wail. For a few fleeting moments,
things seem right with the world; a hero has prevailed, the
race was won by a hair, the unmanned drones levitate and
strafe the coast, rending the coral sky with a psychic boom,
shaking loose a few palm fronds and setting off some car
alarms but otherwise leaving the sprawl unchanged and
teeming. While produced and performed by Aaron M.
Olson, Our Feeling Of Natural High was engineered and
mixed to glossy perfection by Jason Quever and it benefits
greatly from the seamless contributions of John Herndon,
Jason Quever, Marcus Savino, Miles Wintner, Mose
Wintner, Nicholas Krgovich and The Musical Tracing
Ensemble. We’re even treated to a city-hum lullaby to
humanity as a nightcap, with Nedelle Torrisi and Yellow
Magic Orchestra’s Yukihiro Takahashi on vocals, truly
a mint on the pillow of this fantastic soundscape. For
fans of Michael Rother, Top Gun, later Tangerine Dream,
convertibles and long walks on the beach.
