Electronic music has never really been my forte, although I can say I have, on occasion, enjoyed this genre. One of those occasions being recently when an artist I have written about in the past, Douglas Garnett (DigDugDisaster), released a new EP called "Robot Arms" under the name Galilee.
Garnett is multi-talented in the fact that he explores different genres and does it extremely well. His new EP "Robot Arms" shows his extensive talent for electronic music. Driving home from work a couple of days ago, I was listening to this record. All I can say is, WOW! The way that these tracks are laid down is something I've never heard before. Usually, my drive home consists of singer/songwriter music with me singing along, but not recently. The past 3 days I have been listening to "Robot Arms" while driving to and from work and it has been fantastic.
I cannot claim to know much about the electronic music genre, but I will say I know good stuff when I hear it. My taste in music is very eclectic and I am always up for giving new things a try. Listening to Galilee's new EP has given me a new respect for this genre, as well as for the artist Douglas Garnett! The fact that the last time I wrote about him he had just released a rock record, which was fantastic and I still listen to it often, and now he has a new electronic album that is just as incredible, blows my mind.
If your reading this and you are like me and have never really gotten into electronic music, now is the time to give it a shot. Galilee's "Robot Arms" is exactly what electronic music should sound like. One warning though, if listening to it while driving, be careful. I got a bit to into it, spaced out for a moment, and sat at a green light until I was honked at. Click the link below to discover the many, many talents of Douglas Garnett!
