Review – Somebody Language

EP: Habitual Saddness/ Joyous Ambiguity
Release Date: October 15, 2016
Genre: Postrock/ Experimental

Winnipeg, MB based artist Somebody Language will be releasing his newest album entitled Habitual Sadness/Joyous Ambiguity EP on October 15, 2016. Benjiman Figler is the creator and artist behind Somebody Language. He has been writing genre changing songs since 2006, which all incorporate raw human emotions. Somebody Language is known for his high energy stage presence when he is putting on a show and is there to connect with his fans.

When researching, I noticed that the genre was called postrock, experimental, Doo Wop, and when I began listening; I could certainly hear all of these aspects in the songs. I especially loved the Doo Wop sound on the second track, “Bachelor Suite”. Each song has a different feel to it, and I enjoyed hearing the differences of sound on each track.

“Country Love Song for No One” is another that immediately caught my attention. The vocals are very gritty, and the beat has a slight twang.

All in all, this album is a very unique listen, and I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for something that does not fit the cookie cutter sound of a certain genre.
