Alternative & Indie - Released August 31, 2018 | 37d03d
In 2016 Justin Vernon a.k.a. Bon Iver and Aaron Dessner from The National launched a collective named People. The project’s goal is to create an independent space where artists can work and collaborate in a spontaneous manner, without constraints. The album Big Red Machine directly comes from this initiative, even though it started a long time ago. Ten years ago, Dessner sent Vernon a small audio file tweaked with instrumental sounds, as a joke. But after due reflection, his partner became much more interested. From this creative drive came Big Red Machine in 2018. This work made in the April Base studio is a surprising blend of indie rock, psychedelic electro and digital soul. A dozen thematic songs striving for a sensory search and leaving room for the imagination. Big Red Machine is the embodiment of independent music experimenting throughout the creation process. A potpourri neither spectacular nor perfect, but undeniably interesting for its research phase. With mellow beats right from the start (Deep Green), a delicate and sensual auto-tune on Vernon’s voice (Gratitude) and poetic lyrics, this multi-layered album goes through a multitude of phases, and tickles all kinds of genres and sounds. A very promising first creation from the People label! © Anna Coluthe/Qobuz
