Blue Sky Black Death: Noir
Buy! - (Fake Four Inc.)
Blue Sky Black Death are a Seattle-based production duo (Young God and Kingston) that specialize in cinematic, epic, ethereal beats that blend the best widescreen elements of hip-hop, electronics, shoegaze, and post-rock. While they've collaborated with vocalists for their last couple records to marginal success, Noir marks an exciting return to the heights of their 2008 instrumental album Late Night Cinema and finds BSBD focusing on their strengths of lush soundscapes, cracking drums, and powerful vocal samples that are both ghostly and soulful. 4/22/2011 - Alex
