Track: The Midwestern Bass Machine - Goodnight

The Midwestern Bass Machine

Info: The Midwestern Bass Machine is a one-man project from Brock Splawski of Green Bay, Wisconsin, following the release of a self-titled E.P. in January this year he released his debut album, Don't Want To Live Here, which was reviewed on the blog in July, and still stands as one of the best international albums I had the pleasure of writing about this year. Splawski has just released two new tracks, 'Goodnight', a cover of a Catherine Ireton song, singer and theatre maker who was born in Canada but raised in Ireland. 

Unsurprisingly The MBM adopts a lo-fi and chilled approach to both tracks with 'Goodnight' meandering slowly through the motions inducing a sense of calm and serenity with it's tardy drum beat and keys. I really enjoyed the brief but merry 'A Day Outside' from it's quirky retro elevator music chimes to the pleasantly surprising and off the cuff sample of Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes 'Be For Real' sung by seventies soul-singer Teddy Pendergrass. The Midwestern Bass Machine will be releasing a new E.P. early in 2016, in the meantime I highly recommend checking out the rest of his music here.
