Darkly chilled electronica and an assortment of remixes make for a nice evening of listening enjoyment.
About the album:
mayfairgrin seeks to wrap the listener in a warm blanket of molten melodies and chilled rhythms.
This is impressionistic music, existing outside of the verse-chorus-verse structures of a three-minute pop song. The music expands and blurs the boundaries between shoegaze, gothic, ambient, industrial, post-rock, and electronica.
mayfairgrin has existed in various forms for the past ten years… a mainstay to the electronic and ambient music underground.
RIYL cerebral, electronic-leaning artists (Aphex Twin, Boards Of Canada, Bowery Electric, Massive Attack, Moby, and Dead Can Dance), intelligent, introspective, dreampop, ambient, shoegaze.
