#16 – Crush by Floating Points

Over the past several years, I’ve been enjoying electronic music a lot more than I ever thought possible.  The incredible variety in today’s musical landscape has generated many great artists that are genres unto themselves.   Noticing the common inspirations between artists that I like leads me through some fun stream-of-consciousness listening experiences.  You never know where the rabbit hole will lead.  Alternately, a friend with similar taste tells you to check out an album, which brings us to today’s selection.  Crush is so different than most electronic albums I’ve heard.  Some parts of this album sound like they could’ve been played by an actual orchestra.  I’ve never heard an artist use classical instrument sounds in such an interesting way and it has, once again, changed how I think about electronic artists.  That’s been happening a lot recently.
