Various Artists – Midlife CrisisPosted: May 29, 2014
A compilation by the extended Digitalis roster released to celebrate label founder Brad Rose’s 35th birthday (hence the name), it’s an extensive soundscape, a lexicon of different experiences, contacts, enlightenments and visions collected down the road. Collecting works from exactly 35 acts, it’s a retrospective and a future perspective of the Digitalis work, extending from luscious psychedelic folk with a melancholic, autumnal fog descending over it to to computerized krautrock worships condensed into the micrcochip form. Between field recordings and vaporwave, the Digitalis label continues to mine the psychedelic underground for the most visionary and the best. And it’s no the Midlife Crisis, Brad, it’s Midlife Success. Highly recommended!!!
