Various Grounded Sound
- Words: Susanna Bolle
- Label: Grounded
After a long, dark winter, this first full-length release on Boston's Grounded records is a welcome thing indeed. Full of shimmering melodies and delicate beats, it has an almost vernal feel to it, appropriate for the springtime profusion of flora and fauna. Beginning with the tripped-out buzz and hum of E*Rock's "Ice Museum" through to the slow krautrock groove of Charles Atlas's "Italian Air," this is a beautifully subtle collection of quietly jittery beats and warmly melodic electronics. The line-up features such familiar names as Ogurusu Norihide, Emotional Joystick and Greg Davis, but many of its finest moments come courtesy of lesser-known artists (most from Boston), such as Mister Interrupt, Don Mennerich and Soplerfo. Quite lovely.
