ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
First take a multimedia artist, a teacher, a Buddhist, and a half El Salvadoran half Nicaraguan, all of whom are from Texas and then tell them to make a CD. The product would be Collapsing Culture. In total, there are 5 artists represented on the CD: Aether216, A.M. Architect, Darby, MNolo, and Theory of Everything. The 20 tracks on the CD s are as diverse as the artists who made them. Collapsing Culture is a rare gem from the Dirty South that defies being easily categorized and forgotten.

CAL

a nice mix of electronic imagery
this is by far the best electronic album I've heard thus far, I enjoy the way the songs just flow from one to the next, it's like one very long song. 5/5 I hope I hear more from them in the future.

Absolutly granular
Surprisingly good and very catchy electronic. Absolutely amazing and melodic soundscapes in all tracks by Aether216, it keeps attention from the first to the last moment and keep jingle throughout out few other minutes.

CD Baby


An exercise in tasteful potency, this Texan compilation features five artists hell bent on sampling, beating, and looping their ways though 20 tracks of IDM, glitch, and trip hop. At times esoteric, at others completely poppy and accessible, the main strike to my ears is how consistently and completely smart these songs are; there's a subtlety to them that's spacious and glowing. Even when a beat is chopped up and distorted, melodies are languid and effortless, offering a watery wash or a shimmering slush to the solid foundations. One of the most impressive parts, though, is that this doesn't sound like it is necessarily a compilation... the songs work so well together that one's mind is kept within the whole of the album without being jerked out by a rogue song. All of it is lovely and gorgeous.
