Babysun - 13
Babysun has done well to knock me off of the pessimistic platform I've climbed upon in this review series. Their debut EP, 13, is chock full of ambient-pop that is sure to leave you wanting more. Too bad there are only five songs on it.
13 does much to remind me of Pink Floyd and other such trippy artists. Each song is laced with an electronic backing rather than a drum set along with airy vocals and arpeggiated guitar riffs. While the album isn't anything energetic that'll make you want to get up and dance, it is definitely something I enjoyed listening to. The entire album is very relaxed and compared to music of this decade, it is very unique. The relaxed feel is even maintained on the third track whilst the electronic backing seems to want to push it into something much more exciting. The vocalist certainly knows how to control the mood of each and every one of their songs no matter what the instruments are doing.
If you're looking to chill out in a dark room with some noise canceling headphones, I'd definitely purchase this album. After hearing 13, I'm looking forward to Babysun's first full-length release.
