Melodic Minimalism: Like tears in a light rain, LOOΠΔ 1/3’s “Love and Live”

You might at first glance say to yourself:  what is this retro, washed-out Casio sound trying for?

Ah, but there is genius to this.  What I’ve said before about Sweetune’s production on a.de’s “Good Time” perhaps applies in spades here.  They’re milking a deep vein of luminous, haunting melancholy here, and the very “foreignness” of the sonic style pays off.  A couple of listens more, and the whole thing starts to sound epic from the get-go.

  1. You know, now that I’ve posted today’s “Fingertip” I’m not sure I even noticed this was TODAY’S broadcast performance. Go girls!
