Midwest Product - "Swamp EP"
Apr.07.06 Filed in: music
This is the second internet only release in a series from Ghostly International and it shows to me that these releases are going to end up being a series that you don't want to miss. If you think about it distributing albums like this online only is brilliant because there is no overhead with manufacturing costs. I would not be surprised if we started to see more and more of these types of releases in the near future.
I think I have mentioned before how much I love the idea of an EP and how focused they are as a release. There is no filler, no messing around just a few really good songs and the Swamp EP is no exception. Midwest Product releases music that is technically electronic but sounds more as though a band has performed it. Its like Electro-Rock or something. It took me a while to really get into their music but at this point I find myself really enjoying their vibe. I would suggest anyone that is a fan of good instrumental post rock, or fans of electronic music that is not to abrasive to listen to. The Swamp EP will now wear you out listening to it which is a good thing so do yourself a favor and pick this album up now.
It is available both on iTunes and emusic (which you can find a link to in the sidebar to the left)
