Kodomo: Patterns & Light

Kodomo: Patterns & Light

Newest album from Brooklyn-based IDM artist Kodomo. Definitely on the more melodic/rhythmic end of the Warp Records-influenced spectrum, very reminiscent of artists like Plaid, but more risk-taking than any of their recent works. Some acoustic guitars and other non-electronic sounds incorporated into the mix. “Impromptu” is a good way to get acquainted with this artist’s sound, it’s a bit more steady and danceable. “Red Giant” is fast and drum’n’bass-y. Other tracks are a bit more downtempo, but “Blue Shifter” picks up the tempo a little and has some marimba-type sounds. “Infinity Divided” has some vocal sounds, hard to tell if they’re real or synthesized. “Holographic” has more trancey melodies and I’d rather skip it. “Losing Your Way” is the “pop” song I guess, it has chopped up vocals, acoustic guitars, and a knocking future-garage beat.
