Yuutsu – petrichor 

Wednesday 27th, December 2017 / 10:00

 

By Keeghan Rouleau

Independent  

Sample based lo-fi is a growing genre, with many artists either starting from scratch in the scene, or coming from other musical fields. Within all the SoundCloud and Bandcamp startups, it’s often hard to find the needles in the haystack. If you like laid back and sleepy electronic, Yuutsu’s petrichor, is a good place to start. It’s rich with echoing piano melodies, rare, but impactful drums, and a surprising amount of vibrating guitar chords, under a static filter that hazes you into the nostalgia of the music.  

The former Calgarian, and now Vancouver-based artist’s second self-published EP is a beautiful extension of his first, (Transience). Yuutsu deftly uses samples from a variety of sources, ranging from video games, cartoons, and movies. He provides beautiful string samples to be played in a blooming garden, and ripples of bells and keys complete the mind’s eye. An album best heard with shut eyes in a warm bed, this is a shining light in the commonly messy publication service that is the internet.
