Mitchell Turner: Cascade

Mitchell Turner: Cascade

Still making my way through all the Constellation Tatsu promos I’ve had on my laptop for months. I’m pretty sure at least one of them was supposed to be some sort of soundtrack, and listening to this one, I thought this was it, but I don’t think it actually is. The presence of several variations on the main theme throughout the tape make it feels like one. But basically it’s a half hour of languid guitar instrumentals, with occasional synth washes. Everything’s under the 4 minute mark, and mostly pretty melodic, so it establishes an idea quickly and moves on, but sometimes returns to a certain idea, such as the title themes or the tracks called “Dirt Swell”, which have an appropriately swirly distorted guitar sound. Kind of spacey, but in a contained sort of way, if that makes sense.
