The Atomica Project - Grayscale

Wow, what can I say? I’m not even half way done with listening to this album for the first time, and I’ve added it to my to-purchase list (physically, of course). Trip-hop with brilliant female vocals. It’s a very well composed, very detailed album; you can hear how much effort was put into it. I’d like to think that I listen to quite a bit of music, and this particular album stands out immediately. In a similar vein to Portishead and Hooverphonic. The Force is strong with this one. Album description on the website:

Grayscale, the highly anticipated sophomore release from The Atomica Project, embodies in itself the struggle of its execution. Taking nearly 3 years to complete, Grayscale is filled with elaborate narratives of failure and recovery. Loosely based on the dramatic climate of Lauren Cheatham and Wade Alin’s adopted home of Chicago, many of the tracks draw parallels between the cinematic storms of the Midwest and the turmoil of interpersonal relationships.

The download on Flagrant Records is $10 USD, while the physical album (CD format) is $12 USD (update: $10, same as download) . This is the second full length record by this group, the first is called Metropolitan, and for some reason, having not even listened to it yet, I have a very strong feeling that it is as great of an album as Grayscale, if not moreso.

Looks like they’ve got another release in the pipeline.
