Today I’m listening to Magicicada from the lost city of Atlanta. As you can tell from his live track “The Name of the Word”, his brand of pseudo-electronica, pseudo-lofi, pseudo-glitch music uses a lot of consonant sounds. It’s not something that you hear very often from those of us that choose to explore the outer reaches of creativity. While he does later get into some more aggressive tones and textures, it’s the development into some wild rhythms that keeps me locked into this track. With all of the voices at play, it’s really refreshing that it never gets too heavy at any point. It may not seem like a very bold piece of music at first, but as you listen you’ll find many layers to explore. Keep up the good work, Magicicada.
