Music A.M. is a collaborative effort between Luke Sutherland (Long Fin Killie, Bows, Mogwai) Stefan Schneider (To Rococo Rot) & Volker Bertelmann (Tonetraeger).
Skillfully walking a fine line between electronic, pop (& a few other things) with tiny fractured micro beats, Sutherland's soft, hushed vocals & minimal guitar work.
Where the album works the finest is in it's willingness to defy structures and focus on rhythms and mood. The use of sparse beats giving way for the bass, textures of the guitar & electronics to carry the melodies.
a heart & two stars
