Album of the Week

Selected Ambient Works 85-92 by Aphex Twin is a beautiful, hallucinogenic album that truly engrosses the listener.

Recently I have been listening to a lot more electronic music. From Chromatics to Crystal Castles, I find this genre of music very hazy, which I really enjoy. It was only a matter of time before I started listening to Aphex Twin, and now he’s one of my favorites. This album is unlike nothing else because the beats are pretty techno and kind of dance like, but with so many more relaxing effects. With the added ambiance, reverbs, and subtle samples, it creates a heavenly sound. The way the uptempo beats and the ambient aspects combine, it creates an electronic album like no other. My favorite tracks are Xtal, Pulsewidth, and Heliosphan.
