So Percussion: Amid the Noise


A lot of the music that I mention here is out of the comfort zone of many readers, and this album might look the same at first. I’d like to think that if most folks gave this album a listen they’d actually warm to it; Amid the Noise is minimal but lovely on the ears. These talented folk make their own instruments and repurpose other things in ways that make the world seem like a more beautiful place.

The DVD of videos for each song is very special, as it allows you to slow down and watch what happens around you instead of having your perceptions guided by a moving lens. I’d say it’s a good cure for sensory overload, especially in this holiday season of blinking lights and Santa sweaters.
