Album Review

Michna's Ghostly Records debut might find a niche in the chic-meets-geek designer-type crowd, partly because of the slick Giant Robot-inspired album art and partly since this style of mellow electro-glitch background music is the type that would appeal equally to young urban professionals and stay-at-home gamers. As an added bonus for this hip demographic, the record leads off with "Triple Chrome Dipped," a track from Ghostly Swim, Ghostly's collaboration with Adult Swim. Cartoon Network's signature ADD pacing fuels the music of Magic Monday as the former member of Secret Frequency Crew dissects and chops snippets galore to make a sonic collage of electronic beats. A laid-back groove is constant for the full duration, but subtle stylistic changes from song to song keep things interesting. While the clubby "Redline Flights" doesn't sound too far off from a Detroit techno 12" pulled from Juan Atkins' crates, the addition of jazzy live horns (played by Michna himself) changes the vibe of "Skunk Walk" from a gurgling IDM track to a sultry '70s blaxploitation soundtrack theme. Even with splashes of analog instrumentation throughout, songs never sound the least bit organic, but instead buzz and pulsate with a glossy glow, making this a fitting disc for lounging in the digital age.

Suprise

I read about this albums release some months ago and was drawn to it for some reason and so when I saw it available here already I went ahead and picked it up and I could not be happier that I did, after a few listens through I find its some of the best new electronic I've heard in some time. Within a genera that is easily finding itself in stale waters the past couple of years its nice to come across people taking it it and giving it some soul. The horns scattered about in these tracks were a nice surprise and this paired with the song arrangements, the albums overall flow and the unexpectedly tight production on this debut effort really made me fall in love with the music (well as far as I know its his first)... Anyone looking for something relaxed and smooth but still able to take your feet to the dance floor should give this album a shot..

Groovy, whimsical beats--interesting sound samples

Those who remember "Art of Noise" from the 80's and liked them, will probably dig this album. They took a lot of everyday sound samples, mixed them in with some mellow beats and added lots a few interesting layers of other sounds that keep your ears interested, your mind actively interpretting, and your your foot leisurly tapping. The effect is simple music, that is easy to like and probably work well as background music after one or two good serious listens. You're not gonna want to get up and shake to it, but it'll be great music to take a bath to!
