Gonna slow it down a bit for couples skate, now, with a drifting, ambient ballad from newcomer Iggy Koopa, off Kondo's SMW2 OST. Erik writes:
"This is a piece I wrote after about a month of listening to nothing but Sigur Rós and I believe it shows rather clearly. I was aiming for an ambient/dream pop sort of sound with this, but I'm fine with whatever it is now. The song is in 6/8 time rather than the original 4/4."
Introing with a simple, delicate piano, acoustic guitar eventually enters & takes the lead as distant, new age synth pads swirl to and fro in the background. Definitely has that icy, ethereal feel to it, so I think Iggy's influences certainly came through, as he says... McVaffe mixed the same source a looooong time ago, so it's also nice to see some more coverage after all these years. OA writes:
"Sorry if I am ruining expectations by not being harsh, but I love this mix. It's like a lot of the animal crossing music, where it's beautiful melody and harmony, but the synths aren't gentle enough to handle it properly. The change to 6/8 was an excellent call, and the sounds chosen were perfect. I didn't think the drums added much, but I also don't think they really detracted. Sortof a strange situation where they just add a pleasant backing texture, and i'm fine with that."
"This is the way to use a decent-to-bad guitar sample. It's produced and sequenced well, and the fake quality is pretty masked. It barely matters that it's not a real guitar. I really liked how gentle and minimal this song is, and while it might not be everyone's cup of tea, it suits the original very well. The reverb settings are nigh perfect, the trails you get on everything are realistic and lush and fill out the empty space beautifully. Snare was the weakest point, but still not much of one - in a song like this, the percussion should stay out of the way."
The fellas said it well - it's not a complicated mix, but it executes a coherent vision effectively, and achieves a dreamlike flow that's expansive, relaxing, and actually kinda refreshing. Interesting, deliberate, and crystalline debut from Iggy Koopa!
