Ambient Monday with Myrial and FAP #ambient #idm

 

Two sides of ambient this morning from Myrial and FAP. One is chilled and contemplative and the other is harsh and mechanical.

Myrial first. (S)He’s from the UK and offers us the downtempo charms of Leavin’. Subtitled “revival of the real me in progress,” this is a lovely chilled offering. The addition of acoustic guitar and some background piano works so well agianst the crunchy hip hop beats. Magnificently melancholic mood.

Next, some Swedish IDM from FAP. Superbe Alex is an IDM track, with more than a little debt owed to early Autechre, FSOL and Gescom. There’s no room for the organic here, despite the background keening. Who Alex is and why he’s superb is left unexplained. Perhaps its one of Man U’s far flung fans wistfully wondering where the next championship is coming from? Anyhow, the tune is full of aches, creaks and bibbles. Machines have taken over and this is their soundtrack. Autonomous alien ambient.
