Orlando, FL’s FORTUNE HOWL has put together a new album of experimental electronic music. There have been some previous releases before this one, but this one shows a bit more maturity in the songs and moods.
The album has a lot of connections to the trip hop of MASSIVE ATTACK, and some hints of ambient all mixed together to create a masterful creation that gets stuck in your head and in your music player. It also has a world music feel to it that gives the album a bit more depth to it. Even though this is an electronic album, you get warmth and a sense of emotion coming through the sounds. With the album being such a cohesive piece, I really don’t have tracks that just jump out at me, instead I took the album as a whole and let the songs wash over me and take me on a trip.
This is a great album that would be perfect for listening on headphones or putting on after coming home from a night out. It’s not mellow enough to totally chill out to, but not energetic enough to dance to, it’s a perfect relax with yourself or share with friends album.
