My soft spot is ambient music with a touch of vocals and a deep-tone drum. This album, beginning to end, is such a warm experience. Calm, peaceful, and good for relieving stress. Buying this album means supporting the artist, and I sure would love to hear more in the future!
Favorite track: Monsoon.
The Wounded Beat is an album of dark, moody folk set to a subtle backdrop of ethereal atmospherics. Each track paints a different shade of beautiful melancholy through soft, weighty vocals, layered guitars, keys and hazy electronics. Songwriting duo Kael Smith and Matt Herron spent nearly 3 years sculpting hours of material into 8 cohesive songs that flow seamlessly, and are devoid of any fat or excess. Recorded and mixed by Keith Kenniff of Helios, Goldmund etc., The Wounded Beat is a warm and intimate listen, with the perfect amount of optimism lurking amidst its lonely sounds. RIYL: Bon Iver, Innocence Mission, The Sight Below, Sun Kil Moon.
