This year has seen a swelling of producers trafficing in raw, noisy, hardware-centric tracks, but "Snacks," a new tune from Brooklyn-based artist Headaches (a.k.a. Landon Speers), is an intriguing study in the soothing power of crystalline sonics. Ethereal waves of melodies weave in and out of clean kicks and bright, snappy percussion layers while a reversed synth pad congregates with a rumbling bass. "Snacks" finds Speers effortlessly lacing together several counter-melodies and low-end girth, resulting in a hypnotic tapestry of sound.
