KNAPSACK - "Bend"
This debut album by Chicago based electronic artist Knapsack is a tactile journey through several detailed audio environments. Each sound is precision placed with micro lasers for maximum smoothness.
There is much variation between the worlds you will visit on your stay in Bend, including an afternoon ride in a cartoon car, skygazing a large, grassy backyard on a starry night, and a cavernous underground expanse full of water, and hidden creatures. On each portion of the exploration there is a strong sense of place, punctuated by high-test, scientifically formulated EDM beats. The track, Inferior (w/ ÊMIA,) features a polished vocal delivering a relaxing dose of bubblegum sensibility. The ending piece, Spin, creates an upbeat roll-credits moment for the listener to awaken to the reality around them and return to daily life.
