This time we have the band Far Go Traders up for review. To be honest I have not listened to all their songs on their website, but I went thru two or three of them, and based on this I would describe it a experimental electronica – with emphasis on experimental.
And how does it sound? Well at first I was very intrigued by their soundscapes and the images that they managed to paint with small electronic sounds and sampled noices etc, that by the way was very professionally done – no complaints there. However after a couple of minutes into each song I tend to get a bit bored (might be me, but than again) and the main reason for this is that I lack the common thread thru the songs – the thing that keeps it together as one entity.
Experimental music can be extremely beautiful, just look at guys like Brian Eno, but in order for it to be beautiful one need to put something that carries the story thru the song and I feel that this is kind of missing in these songs. A lot of experimental artists solves this with vocals, voiced samples, choirs etc, but that is kind of taking the easy way around it and I do believe that Far Go Traders have the capacity and musical skills to master this without these tricks.
The music is well balanced and the sounds are very nice and the mastering I have nothing to complain about so if you just can master the red line across the songs (espacially when songs to suddenly take a completely different directions) you are right on the track towards a balck belt in experimental music.
Worth listening to? Yes
