Loris S. Sarid: Music for Tomato Plants

Plant-themed electronic albums are clearly nothing new, but this one specifically focuses on small, household ones that appear simple but bravely carry out their function. The sounds are gentle and delicate, clear and melodic, and the vibe is a little similar to Japanese environmental music (particularly on “Ferns and I”) but there’s also some ASMR tendencies, with some close-up sounds and whispers appearing on some tracks. The first track also has a kettle whistling away. It’s just very domestic, household music, music to tend to your houseplants while stuck in your apartment during the endless pandemic. Yet there’s also spacey qualities to tracks like “Toad”.
