Mighty Medley: Cotton Claw, Hira King, and In Sonitus Lux

15 Apr

An eclectic electric mix for your hump day. Get to listening.

Cotton Claw – “GRAINY”

Though the title may contradict it, this track is crystal clear and silky smooth. Beats bleed into one another until the dimensions shift around you. An excited theremin pipes in, giving the song a story, grounding it. “GRAINY” is cosmically down-to-earth.

Find more information about Cotton Claw on their website, or find them on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Soundcloud.

Hira King – “Hummingbird”

Please ignore that cover art. For something that looks like it came from the last acid trip of a hippie before he was sent off to Vietnam, this track exemplifies the hip in trip-hop. I have no idea what vibe I’m supposed to get from this, but whatever it is, I’d like more please.

In Sonitus Lux – “Her Eyes in the Morning”

I’ll save you the trouble of googling it; “in sonitus lux” is Latin for “light in sounds.” Quite synesthetic. Taking a very prominent role in the spine of “Her Eyes in the Morning” is an obscure instrument known as a hang. It looks and sounds like an inverted steel drum, and gives this chilling ambient a little pizzazz. At thirteen minutes in length, this is an odyssey, but if you have some spare time to spend with it, you should.
