Walking Febrility

Shigeto - Soaring

There is a certain kind of person who enjoys the rare pleasure of being put off-balance. People who listen to and seek out new music are like this, I think. You grow accustomed to sounds. Your ability to listen becomes more sophisticated, or at least more experienced, after years of absorbing songs, sounds, noise. Surprises usually arrive in the form of new sounds, or occasionally as old sounds put to new purposes. That's what's happening here, on "Soaring." The components Shigeto usues are all identifiable and in some sense familiar, but they're deployed to create an asymmetry in the song, so that it's tough to get your bearings: things are moving at different speeds.
