Song of the Day - May 26, 2005

Aarktica excel at creating ethereal soundscapes composed of multiple layers of sound. The track "Aura Lee" causes one to go on a journey across just such a soundscape. The trip begins with the steady beat of a hi-hat, followed by a constant bass riff, and distorted guitar. The journey continues as Jon DeRosa's vocals enter into the mix, only to be joined by some lovely female vocals from Lorraine Lelis. At this point the trek across the soundscape is reaching a crescendo as the guitar feedback builds, only to fade slowly away soon after. I like this song quite a bit. In fact, the more I listen, the greater my appreciation of the music. Click here to listen.
