Urbandawn: Gothenburg Cluster Preview

This is the new album from Urbandawn released on Hospital Records, and it is looking really good so far. I have not listened completely but I can say from the tracks that I have listened to so far that it is well in contention for album of the year. ‘Together Again’ is a standout track, with a beautiful 8-bar piano chord pattern and heavyweight drums and bass propelling you through this vocal-driven masterpiece. ‘Black Notes’ is another standout, with Daniel Baeder on the drums, played live so they just sound otherworldly. Again, Urbandawn’s amazing production and piano-led riffs pull you through this tune, with loads of interesting twists and turns throughout. Finally, ‘Prime Expansion’ is the third track I will describe, with shimmering pads and crunchy live drums, chopped vocal effects and a bass reminiscent of Camo and Krooked, however warped into Urbandawn’s distinct funky style.
