Shlohmo points streamers a fuller imaginative and prescient of the sound that may characterize the WeDidIt founder’s forthcoming album, The End. The enigmatic producer’s first prolonged providing since 2015’s Dark Red, The End stays elusive within the technics of its model, however seems decidedly apocalyptic. Shlohmo articulated the conceptual foundation of The End as one “vaguely concerning the finish of the world, however from the point of view of smoking on the sofa throughout the extinction occasion. Reading a pleasant guide whereas the meteor hits.” The tranquil quiet within the midst of chaos that guides Shlohmo’s imaginative and prescient for The End translated on the LP’s debut eponymous single.
Shlohmo now turns the web page within the metaphorical guide, the discharge of one other minimize from the incoming undertaking, “Rock Music.” “Rock Music” parallels “The End” in its deliberate distortion of the digital parts that comprise the monitor. Glitchy plucks of a guitar shift atop a snarling bass line. Percussive breaks simply earlier than the tune’s halfway level accent shrill tones that impact a common sense of eeriness, albeit of a temperate, unimposing nature. If listeners wanted additional rationalization of Shlohmo’s premise for The End, they’ll discover it audibly in “Rock Music.”
