SBSR: Marley Carroll “R&S Cedars”

Marley Carroll “R&S Cedars”
Recently, I’ve been downloading and listening to music like crazy from Band Camp.   This is a review of a group of songs by the same band I got from Band Camp- usually it constitutes an EP.   This is a song-by-song review and it is never to exceed six songs.   At the end, I will tell you the “Recommended Downloading Level”, which means whether or not I think you should spend your time downloading these songs.   It’s on a scale from 1 to 5, 5 meaning that you should stop reading my review and download these songs immediately and 1 meaning that if you even think about downloading these songs your computer will be infected with a horrific bad music virus.   Enjoy.

<1> “R&S” – We have some “ohms” like the beginning of “Dead Like Me” (or Kimbra) and then some bass and drum clapping.   We have a few other beats in here as well, but most of the content of this song so far is slow and fairly light.   It picks up a little bit more toward the end, but right now this is something between Bjork and Enya, which is a compliment even though I don’t particularly like those two artists. 
<2> “Water Drumming” - This song opens with piano and knocking.   Then we’re into a pretty quick and erratic drumbeat behind it.  And now there is laughing going on.   This is interesting.    And I do hear the rain in the background as well. 
<3> “Cedars” –  These beeps sound like car horns, but I can only imagine it to be more of the trippy, instrumental ambient music that is good to put on when you’re creating some art, having sex or at some sort of art-sex party.
                It’s a mere three songs, but you should still give it a shot.
Recommended Downloading Level:  3/5
