Brett’s Sound Picks: Ben Lukas Boysen’s “Golden Times I”

The music opens with a rolling triplet piano and ghosting guitar figure that takes the non-obvious harmonic route. There’s a melody now–a violin soaring in the midst of the piano/guitar clouds, and underneath more weather building in electronic bass burble and far away processed percussion. The system grows by cycling around and around, never showing its seams, bringing you to its end through a return to where it began.
