+Dome by Seekae (2011)
Kind of Like: Mono/Poly, Shigeto, Baths
Genres: Electronica, Chillwave, Ambient
This is a glitchier version of all the recent chillwave bands. Really soothing and catchy.
"For Sydney Electronica boys Seekae, it was always going to be hard to follow on from the heights of “The Sound of Trees Falling on People“, an album that FBi radio suggested was among the top ten of the decade.
Perhaps the greatest treat to lapse our ears from that album was ‘Void’, the great song that we played over and over, never got sick off, never passed in the jukebox and is still on high rotation after all of these years. If there were ever a better way to aurally transcend reality, I still haven’t found it.
Seekae’s new album ‘+Dome’ does exactly that … again! Set for release on 25th March with Rice Is Nice Records, ‘+Dome’ is jam-packed full of fat beats, soft spaces, plenty of diversity and enough synthesizers, drum machines and glockenspiels to wow your head off!"
