San Francisco-based producer Eskmo (Brendan Angelides) said he had "a lot of deep life-experience type stuff happening" while he was working on his debut self-titled album for Ninja Tune. The resulting collection of churning, contemplative soundscapes combines an inventive bedrock of sludgy bass with layers of piercing synthesizers, shimmering water, hissing airflow, and silverware percussion that all slowly heave up, dissipate, and finally come crashing down into dramatic walls of sound. Adding even more depth to the already dense compositions are Angelides' vocals—deep and dispassionate echoes that somehow tie everything together despite feeling completely divorced from the emotion surging out through the rest of the music. Then again, that sense of separation merged with the muddy oscillation of the album as a whole is not unlike what one feels when going through "deep life-experience type stuff." AVA HEGEDUS
