Incorporating interesting voiceovers ranging from the horrors of Count Dracula to the loftiness of the cockpit conversations and aircraft whirring sounds heard on Floydian Masterpieces like ‘Goodbye blue sky’ or ‘Learning to fly’, Maxwell uses his brilliant hazy voice and ambient, downtempo sounds to whisper relevant witticisms into our ears. Aptly titled Murmur, this deserves multiple listens. A few of our favourites from the album:
Find me a beholder who doesn’t find this beautiful and I’ll show you a liar! Melancholy vocals blend seamlessly with the gut wrenched piano work and the contrastingly upbeat rhythm, quite possibly making this the bittersweet symphony of our times. For one of those moments when you just want to sit back and dwell and come to the conclusion that you are what you are and things are what they are and it is best to just accept and embrace albeit with a somewhat heavy heart.
Perfect End to an imperfect day! Well not so much imperfect, but lets say ‘less than ideal’! I woke up mildly hungover and realised that my house looks like a wreck,second only to countries destroyed by superpowers looking for WMDs. So as a good citizen I got down to action and after 7 hours of ordeal, I can finally sit back and relax. But then, when you discover such gems like Lilu’s Song by Zefora, you know it has been a good day. All is well that ends well! But when the beginning, intermediate and final sections of an Odyssey make every pore on your skin relax and induce a happy dreamy state without any Mary Jane on offer, you know you have uncovered Stupendosity.
