Teen Daze – Themes For A New Earth

Teen Daze
Themes For A New Earth

Releasing his second project of the year, Jamison Isaak’s Themes For A New Earth is an enjoyable collection of instrumental tracks with a singular tone. The album was recorded at the same time as Themes For A Dying Earth, but lacks the vocal contributions of its predecessor. New Earth feels like a collection of outtakes as opposed to a full-fledged companion album. To Isaak, there’s a similar theme to both being reborn and dying, as the two projects sound nearly indistinguishable in terms of production. However, Teen Daze establishes a tone that is potent and vibrant like the colours of fall. Isaak previously enlisted guests like S. Carey of Bon Iver for his last album, but the soundscapes of New Earth hold their own without any features.  

The project is soothing, capturing the grandiosity of nature in both instrumental-heavy tracks and ambient compositions. It sounds like it could be the soundtrack to an 8-bit videogame where exploration and adventure is at the forefront. True to the album cover, it deconstructs the beauty of staring out into the ocean and watching waves crash along the coastline, evoking a wide array of emotions such as serenity, melancholy, and hope. While New Earth is solid from front to back, mixing tracks with Dying Earth enriches the concept. There’s no correct combination, as Teen Daze has masterfully allowed the decision to be dictated by the listener.
