I'm here jagging things again...... this is another FREE release for you to DOWNLOAD for FREE, ie NADA, NOTHING, ZERO pennies. In todays CREDIT CRUNCH then surely this cannot be missed... it's also rather good.
The debut release from Dean Angel finds him exploring haunting melodies through his almost counter-tenor voice, while the accompanying samples and instruments remain relatively redundant and static.
You cannot write a Dean Angel review without drawing similarities to the work of Animal Collective, and perhaps narrow that down further to the solo efforts of Panda Bear. However, all in all, Dean Angels music is more subdued, and thoughtful.
That isn't to say that this release is simply plagiarizing what has come before it - it is riddled with gorgeous twists, and turns, delicately interweaved together in a resplendent fashion. This EP is one that moves effortlessly from idea to idea, from the careful strumming of Hola Jote, to the churchlike encapsulating repetition of Oheeoh. It is this kind of repetition that creates opportunity for transcendental experience. This is Dean Angel’s religious music.
