Resilience Single, Import
Top Customer Reviews
"Resilience" marks another change in the Kid 606 catalogue, and sits somewhere closer to the more downtempo leanings of his more electronica tracks occasionally dotted around his various albums. It's not quite the ambient affair that "P.S. I Love You" was, but rather a collection of tracks that were created in between albums or commissioned tracks. The mood here, is one of warm electronica, mixed with mellow synthesisers, that probably have more in common with 'Post-rock, IDM & Downtempo'. So tracks like "Done with the Scene" take soft synth sounds and mixes them with soft almost pop structures.Read more ›
True to form, Depedro veers completely away from 2004's hyperactive, bombastic Kill Sound Before Sound Kills You and Who Still Kill Sound?. Resilience is much calmer and less abrasive as far as sound and sample choices, and just plain "warmer" in a global sense (the orchestration, the mix, the mood and the melodies). Perhaps Depedro's open dedication to his mom on the sleeve is a clue to this serene outpouring, something free from the word "pussy" that she can appreciate while sharing a cup of tea with her son at Sunday brunch (after he chucks his crack pipe in the trash) -- but regardless, it's the most listenable collection in the kid606 catalog.
In addition to subverting fan expectations, Depedro still listens only to his own voice, so of course the disc is universally irrelevant.Read more ›
