So Rob M. suggested this one because his cousin’s roommate’s best friend’s brother is in the band, or something like that; I coudn’t keep it straight. What I do get is the ambient beats and noise laid down by Corwin Trails. Pleasant melodies, event bouncy at times, coexist among fractured and warped samples and scratches. Walls are built and crumble, time stops and starts — it all reminds me of this paper I wrote in college about how, in his poem The Waste Land, T.S. Eliot subverted the Second Law of Thermodynamics. (Sure he did!) Providers of the soundtrack to the film version of this epic battle between physics and literature: Corwin Trails.

Feels very Boards of Canada ish. Nice.
Yeah, Extremely Boards of Canada. It doesn't start off too good, but gets nice.
1) This does feel very like T.S. Eliot. Reminds me of Air King Sound, which in my mind is linked inextricably with "The Hollow Men."
2) You spelled "thermodynamics" wrong. =)
