I can live with that, especially when I listen to their outputs. Take this album by Brooklyn-based act The Tin Box. It's formed by composer Tucker Sferro who began his career playing trumpet in live jazz ensembles. Later, he expanded his instrumentarium and his music followed.
'Invisible Kin' shows a few of these influences, namely ambient, intelligent dance music and downtempo electronics. Opener 'Far Away Spaces' immediately reminds me of acts like Plaid and Boards Of Canada, two names who will pretty much remain a constant throughout the entire album. On the other hand, Laraaji and Autechre also come to mind, sometimes together as in the immersive 'Voyage Immeasurable'.
The overall tone seems to be playful and joyous. I think listening to this album can seriously improve your mood. Although the album is easily categorizable in the ambient scene, there are numerous uptempo melodies, hence probably the Laraaji influence. Of course, the percussion and beats also do their part in the bright and almost cheerful atmosphere of the music. 'Metropolis One' is an excellent example of that ànd one of my favorites here.
Another one of my favorites is 'The Muse Eternal', a slow but energetic piece of music with less capering passages than most of the tracks here. That being said, yes, the majority of the music consists of rather jumpy melodic aspects. Personally, I wouldn't mind one or two deep droning pieces of music in between the others but that's just a personal opinion. In this house, I probably solve that by adding these songs to my day to day shuffle list.
I suggest you do the same. In all 'The Invisible Kin' is a highly enjoyable album which will quite possibly put a blissful smile on your face. So check it out and allow the music of The Tin Box to take you on a little journey through your own psyche. It'll be worth it.
