Morning Fuel: The Helio Sequence - Upward Mobility
Even with urgent, tangled guitar textures, the Helio Sequence has crafted a propulsive but meditative song. I don’t know what effects are on the drums to make them sound so distant, but it actually makes the frantic business of them sound more like a background textures than the pounding rattle they would be if foregrounded. This is the kind of track I feel like I could listen to dozens of times and find new things and new thoughts to go along with that beautiful cover art. Psychedelic? No, but evocative.
