Cassette Review: Theodore Schafer "So Young" (Hacktivism Records)

[$3 // Edition of 15 //]

When "So Young" begins you can hear the sound of quiet, ambient synth drone and though it can probably be compared with many other artists I've reviewed the first that comes to mind for me is Lost Trail and, hey, I'm never going to say that something reminds me of Lost Trail if it sounds bad.

As the first side sort of carries on this pattern, the second takes on some lasers (seemingly added on top of what Side A presents) and it becomes lost in a world of spatial bliss.   There is also some sort of background talking on Side B, which does make it slightly different than Side A.

This is a C10, which means roughly five minutes of music per side, and as such it is one of those situations where you have to make the most of your time and as such Theodore Schafer makes every second count.

Additionally, you could sometimes hear an hour or more worth of music along this nature and only really have time to iisten to it through a few times before reviewing it but being that this is shorter in length it gives you more chances to listen to it (Because six times would be a total of an hour, so do the math on how many times you can really listen to it.

       Hell, you could listen to it once a day forever since it's a mere ten minutes) and that just gives you more opportunies to take different stories and ideas from it.   So far my favorite is about an alien abduction, but I'll you go ahead and form your own.
