Helvetia
 
 

CHECK THIS: Helvetia + Stream + MP3

 

By: Spacelab Research Staff
Helvetia: sonic travellers, space explorers, experimentalists to the core. Their music is layered with dense lo-fi sounds, off-kilter rythyms, and an otherworldly quality that's hard to define. They're out on tour right now in support of their latest album, The Clever North Wind.

That song you're hearing right now is called Dusty Rue , off of their album The Clever North Wind . It's playing in the Galaxy Media Player above and to the right if you need to use the controls.

Sometimes this sounds like lo-fi achievments from Lou Barlow and Eric Gaffney's Sebadoh experimental bedroom recordings, but sometimes it goes beyond that, jutting out into outer space and reaching for more. There's also catchy grooves of AM radio sounds and lively beats with spurious guitar leanings, very catchy. It's like Steely Dan inhabited a station on your AM dial and started cranking out lo-fi workouts.
