For someone constantly excavating for new artists and fresh tracks, a single is nice, 4-song EPs are good, and albums are great. But nothing beats a random and massive Thursday night SoundCloud dump from one of your favorite producers – thanks, Mr. Carmack.
Having uploaded 52 tracks and counting in the last hour, Mr. Carmack has yet to give any explanation of the torrent of new material aside from his rather narrative track titles and a simple watercolored cherry blossom accompanying all the songs as track art. But as musicians should do, I gladly welcome the music speaking for itself. Ranging from samples of Postal Service’s “Such Great Heights” to those of DUCKWRTH’s “Time”, Carmack unequivocally showcases his handle with and versatility in different styles, all while curating some dope music for us. And don’t worry, lots classically-Carmack wonky noises and lightly ratchet tracks in between. I’ll be happily going down the entirety of the list tonight, but enjoy some standouts thus far below and check the rest out yourselves on his SoundCloud.
One more thing: they’re all available for free download. Whoot!
