Another day, another cool ambient tape. Coming from the same label as Marconi Union’s¬†Departures, Boliden’s¬†Meta is described by¬†Chemical Tapes as something with lo-fi techno aesthetics. However, as I listen to this, I’m just reminded more and more of Broken Social Scene’s¬†Feel Good Lost (my favorite album of theirs, by far) which is often referred to as post-rock/ambient. I just can’t help but think of tracks like “Alive In 85” and “Last Place.”¬†Meta is very nostalgic for me. It reminds me of when I was first learning about indie music ten years ago. To be
young younger again… I’m more or less sold from what I’ve heard so far. For around $9 (at the moment), getting an extremely limited tape and a full album sounds like a good deal to me. Also, it’s as good a time as any to get in on the action – this is Delgado’s debut, after all. Gas also comes to mind when I listen to this, for whatever it’s worth. Listen to the album in full via the Bandcamp player and see what you think of it. Cheers!
First in the Solid Hex series of more beat focused releases. Boliden's debut album entitled Meta. 10 tracks exploring hypnotic lo-fi techno aesthetics.
