Astrological

 

I’ve got just a real quick one for you today as we wait for the hill to be released from it’s Google-imposed purgatory. AstroLogical is the nom-de-knob-twiddle of Nate Drobner, a multi-instrumentalist and producer from Vancouver. The other day we were sent a link to his recent album, Living Fossils, and it’s coming in handy today for a couple reasons. Mainly I can appreciate the 13 fairly mellow instrumental tracks that are perfectly suited to mid-summer listening, but that mellow-ness is also helpful when your blog-nerves are frazzled due to a malware infection that has you banned by the Google.

 

No matter, we’ll get that sorted, and after all, you’re here aren’t you? So then, if you’re interested in some instrumental music to help get you through your hump-day, you can get yourself a free copy of Living Fossils right here. It’s good stuff in my humble. Drobner is obviously very influenced by hip hop (in fact he produces & MC’s for a group called Elekwent Folk), and that certainly comes through in the drums he uses and the fact that he splices the odd vocal sample into his tracks. But he shows his musical side as well, surrounding his hip-hop drums with a variety of lush sounds that speak to a whole range of other influences.
