The Waveform Warns (MP3)

A reflective rifflet by Tyler John Arnold

The wave form warns you, certainly. There’s a serious jump shortly into “Freur” by Tyler John Arnold. It’s like a small wave hitting a seawall, except that the seawall continues for a long time before tapering off. That wall signifies a serious volume jump in the track, from hazy field recordings to a ringing drone-like rifflet that cycles over and over, with various elements, from muted vocal fragments to off-the-beat rhythmic moments to odd noises, layered atop. The volume leap is quickly forgotten thanks to the downtempo setting, and the overall effect is that of sonic curiosities peeking through.
