Release Date: October 26, 2018
Calgary electronica solo artist Carbolizer has been working on an album for 2 years. Announced in 2016, Carbolizer has been working away making an album he is proud and obsessed with. That album is none other than the self-titled release Carbolizer.
An electronica album is a new field for me as I have only tiptoed into this particular genre. The opening track “Sky” is very melodic. One of those types of songs where I can see myself having a long walk and this song making everything seem more vibrant. Is that a weird description? It’s the honest truth.
“Editor”, which he released as a single in advance of the album release, has a darker feel to it. It still has that mind-enhancing feel to it, making me want to relax when hearing it. I feel like this is a common theme throughout as the following track “Ring” makes me feel the same way, even with the faster pace. This song is also one I can hear me playing for other people and them enjoying it.
“Ice” starts off like a classic Nintendo game, fast-paced throughout feeling like an enemy is going to attack. When that enemy does, “Time” starts playing. I know I’m having some weird comparisons throughout this review but overall, this is how these songs are making me feel. It’s a unique feeling I’ve rarely had with this form of music.
The final song “Wave” is a 7-minute long transadelic, beautiful song that is pure relaxation. This album is the best way to relax after a long day or during a walk on a nice trail. As for my first real step into electronica, I can tell you that this adventure was amazing. Carbolizer did a great job with his first album and placed a good footprint in the electronica genre.
Hey! I’m Carson and I like music and animals. Not only do I have a wide variety of music I enjoy but I also have a wide variety of animals. My style can go from your Top 40 songs right into songs that literally no one has ever heard of in a heartbeat and I’m okay with that. You can find me on the Internet enjoying memes and playing way too many video games for a ‘grown-up’.
