You know that sweet, low-budget, low bitrate charm of the tracks that live only on Soundcloud? It’s sort of funny, right? Like, how the democracy of the platform makes it something of an afterthought for artists with the luxury of a feasible commercial agenda. And how that actually makes the Soundcloud purist – who ironically utilizes Soundcloud for its universal accessibility – into a rare and precious commodity.
This one has the weight and rough edges of an uncut diamond. A wild pearl. Something to be cherished both for its potential and raw beauty.
Found this one on How To Dress Well’s new mix, enigmatically titled That’s What’s Called Living, Right? – a collage of music, philosophy, and conversation that influenced 2016’s Care. It’s a beautiful listen.
