Epoch is the final album in the trilogy beginning with 2011's Dive, then 2014's Awake. This period between Dive and Epoch marks a significant maturation for Scott Hansen's continually expanding project, one that has taken him from a solo performer and bedroom artist to fronting a live 4-piece band on large stages across the world. Epoch hones the sonic aesthetic of Dive while drawing on the kinetic energy of Awake, it explores darker themes and new musical territory. The album was produced and recorded by Hansen predominantly in his home studio in Berkeley, CA. The album was arranged alongside long time collaborator and partner in the project, Zac Brown. Brown contributed bass and guitar parts to the songwriting process. Rory O'Connor performed drums on the album. Hansen sees Epoch as a multi-dimensional artistic vision at the confluence of his graphic design work via ISO50 and music with Tycho. The graphic presentation of album artwork is as important as the music itself. The keystone is the central image of Epoch and the colors scheme red and black. This is a stark contrast to the almost rainbow palette of Awake.
En mi opinión es menos musical y se agradecería carcasa de plastico , viene en un envoltorio de cartón
Le coffret vinyle est très simple mais il y a un bon à télécharger en version mp3 !
Essendo un regalo, non ho avuto modo di ascoltarlo, ma so che è stato molto apprezzato.
You can definitely hear the BoC influence sprinkled about, but since they hardly put out new music it's nice to have options. There is an overt and adventurous angle here that fills me with a vision of going on a bustling camping trip in the daytime.... something like hiking in the forests with far off vistas and puffy clouds in the sky. Once you hear it the sound is kind of addicting.
Tycho has never really made a bad record either. And this one continues in the vein of Dive and Awake, with an electronic vibe that sees guitar and drums intertwined with a nostalgic and luminous tone.
The mastering is about DR7, which is a tad hot but the bass is very nice. These guys are definitely not quite Boards of Canada with their mastering, but altogether it still is a great listen. For me it's probably around a high 8. Tycho will have to do something a bit more experimental to grab me after this trilogy. It's also hard to rate these albums. I want to say 5, but I feel that might be a bit much considering all the influences and his own previous work. At any rate it's a very enjoyable CD and a must buy.
