How beautiful to start a morning with a discovery of a magnificent new artist. Thanks to Alabama-based artist Henry Armbrecht aka Beach Weather, I had the pleasure just a few minutes ago. And it pleased me so much that I could not resist to write about it immediately.
Well, probably already the artists’ ‘line-up’ above at the article’s start tells a very lot about why Beach Weather's music makes such an impression on me, as it combines at least some of my favourite artists. Once more, it is no impression which 'wow!'s me away, it is one of a rather gentle, yet so pure and beautiful nature that makes it hard to escape from.
On his 5-track EP Cascadia, Beach Weather manages to form a dulcet musical whole, filled with details which yet are so choiceful arranged that each of them gets its distinctive place, no overload of sound constructions happening here. Even if it seems to be cliché-ful, in this case, the cover art was wisely chosen as indeed, the music sounds as the image its cover is transporting: Fluffy and echoing, but with a certain, yet very flexible structure. The end of Still Life reminds me undoubtly a lot on Youth Lagoon’s first LP, whereas Small Voices definitely brings along the cool, urban yet still dreamy atmosphere of London-based Brolin.
You see, it is quite a grand mix.
Thus: Highly recommended!
