Napoleon shows his creative endurance with monthly EP project

Napoleon takes on after Sufjan Stevens in his latest creative undertaking.

I recently discovered Napoleon, a musician who makes beats like a chilled, electro Ratatat. In other words, this is what the future sounded like in the ‘90s, with all the spacey clean synths. When looking further into Napoleon’s career and recent recordings I discovered that he had embarked upon a new and extensive project. Similar to the Sufjan Stevens’ 50 albums for 50 states hoax, Napoleon announced he would release one four-track EP each month this year. I think Sufjan’s major downfall was that he didn’t give himself a deadline, but Napoleon is cranking out the tunes like he means it. (I think Sufjan’s other downfall was that he never could have been able to write enough lyrics for the boring states like Kansas and Iowa.)

October is upon us, so the September EP, 9: A Golden Roadtrip, has just been released. Below, I’ve listed my favorite track from each month’s EP, starting with the most recent release, and will update for the future three EPs that are slated to be released in the next three months. Don’t give up now, Napoleon! You’ve come too far to stop now!

For more information on Napoleon, visit his website. (I included two tracks from February’s EP because somehow, in 28 days, Napoleon wrote five tracks, rather than his promised four. Madness.)
