Every-so-often an album comes along that knocks me off my feet... because it is so "now"... so exactly what I want to listen to right now.
This is what I feel when I consider Nic Bommarito's album Harp Fragments (released on 12rec.net). It has post-rock soundscapes interspersed with glitchy ambient electronic moments... which combine to create a vivid atmosphere of now. There is a real vitality to this album... its something almost tangible... so refreshingly alive.
As the blurb on the website says...
Tender and fragile parts change with fuzz-soaked, shoegazing noise passages that never let miss melody and bliss. Everything is tight and dense, and although the production is not always hi-fi Nic found the perfect form for his beautiful, emotional music.It is truly beautiful and emotional music... just right for now. Thing is... I have a feeling it will sound just right tomorrow too.
