Barring the occasional anomaly, geography is everything. From oxygen to architecture, its effect on creation is incalculable. Whether it’s music, books, or or painting, regionalism will always have at least a subtle influence on acts of art. So Audyssey and Yours Truly are on to something with their latest series: The Neighborhood. Wrangling SF by way of LA producer Shlohmo and getting him to give a guiding tour of SOMA, it captures a side of music usually only discussed in a distant and remote way.
Capturing both cityscape and home studio, it provides a window into stuff that’s usually only accessible through words or sound. The moral of the story is that I’ll stop typing and leave it to the visuals. Plus, as a bonus, the site snagged a special remix of Shlohmo’s Places, from the EP of the same name available on Friends of Friends.
