Layered

Artist: 
Giraffage
Label: 
Counter Records

Giraffage is an electronic music producer who incorporates a lot of R&B, hip hop, and dream-like sounds into his music. This album uses a lot of back and forth of vocal samples, steady bass, and electronic twists in each song. Some of the songs sound more dreamy, others sound a bit video game-like or funky. Some of the tracks just maintain a steady, constant beat like "Just Over the Horizon" while others like "First Breath" incorporate a lot of different, almost contrasting sounds at once.

This is a very tight, sleek record. The instrumentation is perfectly crafted to where it crescendos into something greater than the sum of its parts. Overall, A Deeper Understanding is a fantastic record, and what we've come to expect from The War on Drugs. Frontman Adam Granduciel manages to perfectly integrate 80s influenced synth rock with a Springsteenish authenticity, and the result is a record full of anthemic, awesome rock songs.
