Song of the Day - July 17, 2006

I was drawn to Gregor Samsa by the reference to Kafka's Metamorphosis. The band creates sonic landscapes with brief vocal touches in the spirit of Sigur Ros, M83, and Labradford. Their music is made up of long slowly repeating phrases, accented by pauses, and distant vocals. The music generally is of a relaxing nature, but very intriguing, a perfect way to unwind after a long day. "Even Numbers" is an excellent example of Gregor Samsa utilization of languid musical phrasing, slowly building tensions, and lush sonic vistas. Click here to listen.
