Stumbling out through saloon doors because you weren’t really given a choice. Yes, it seems a bit too cliche but everything is carried on. You only become much more lost while waiting. A peculiar synth seems to draw out everything here and leaves you thinking extraterrestrially. Given as outside communication, but it doesn’t seem to provide any sort of clear help, at least on this end of the line. It then becomes static, dipped in reverb, and is followed by a chorus, only fitting that it all seems aimless. Only fitting that nothing seems to fit, but still comme il faut.
Datahowler is the man behind Tropic Highlife, a blog archiving a collection of tropical themed tunes that seem to keep you thinking of a lost time. Live was recorded as the first assembled live set by Datahowler, opening for Braids and Baths at the time. The album takes you through all sorts of windows that seem to be extended through views of a space frontier, all while keeping a level of mystery formed through various synths and samples, backed by low key percussion and an empathy found in every aspect of Live.
