If you’re one of those listeners that turns a track off if your not satisfied within the first 30 seconds then this next one isn’t for you. Beyond the fact that Traum17 spends the first track and a half purely setting the stage, the payoff seems to be as strange as the introduction. The latter half of the second track, oddly named ‘Non-Track’ really is the only track that might resemble something the pop media might recognize as an actual song and then, when you think they’ve finally settled in, things get weirder. The album unwinds itself and exposes a true nature within, finally finishing with ‘Chain Reaction’. There are a lot of comparisons to be made and I’ll make none.
With technology growing exponentially, personal computing is challenging the recording business and the internet is challenging the publishing business. Now more than ever, we see the pool of music and design growing deeper. But as always, the more there is, the harder it is to find what matters.
Dingus is dedicated to the hunt. Scouring the web, fighting through the pollution to find those truly worthy of historical notation. It's here, on this humble blog that we shed light on the underfunded, under-appreciated bedroom artists of the modern generation.
Everyday we see hundreds, if not thousands of projects posted and everyday we look and listen to find the ones that matter.So if you want what's popular, this is not the blog for you . If you want what's honest, pure and passionate then you've somehow landed on the right URL. So stay tuned and enjoy your fellow peers' endeavors.
To the artist: however you reach your community, always feel free to send us your work. Just remember; art is not a business, it's not a market, it's not a popularity contest. It is only a cultural vessel to live within and any other thinking is unacceptable.
