George & Jonathan
George Brower and Jonathan Baken are electronic musicians that collaborate on composing music. To top off the amazing sound of their latest album George & Jonathan III, their futuristic website allows you to see as well as hear the music and is definitely worth a visit.
George & Jonathan’s track “Canopy” could be the theme song to my life. It’s fun, it’s catchy, and its blippy and bubbly. It has a tropical-like sound that sends good vibrations throughout my robotic body. I will go as far as to say, it sounds like a song that could be in a Crash Bandicoot or Donkey Kong Country game. Part of the thrill of this song are the actual bubble sounds in the background which adds to the fun and energy of this track.
In contrast to “Canopy” is the track “Hurtful Things”, which has a more fast-paced and synth-infused dance beat. This is the type of song that would inspire you to wear metallic purple pants and a vest with a keyboard printed on it. The song “R U IN 2 IT” reminds me of a mix between Kraftwerk and a variety of fantastic electronic sounds from the 90’s.
