Change Leopardon‘s latest release ‘Gaiden‘ is a dreamy menagerie of sound and ethereal rhythms. The tracks juke between dreamy instrumental ambiance and shoe gaze wonders. With the Colossal tendencies of acts like Godspeed you Black Emperor, Jonsi, and Explosions in The Sky, the tracks build to a balancing ghostly climax before drifting back into sleep. Phantom melodies play back up in other tracks, the vocals usually playing a minimal role but that is not to say they are at all less dominate. The noisy wall of sound created with these spacey shoe gazers is irresistible with its pop sensibility. Slowly the album transgresses into experimental noise rock with breaks of fresh melodic air. This is seemingly the beginning to what can become a very expansive artist, with such variety of sound and control of the vibe, its a matter of time before his modus operandi comes into full focus. listen to his tracks below and check this out yourself.
