Track of the Day: Filastine

Categories: MP3 of the Day
"Singularities" by Barcelona-based globetripper Filastine is an evocative track, stirring up cinematic images of emotional worlds crashing to a disastrous, beautiful collapse. There's an evil edge to the stuttered string samples and scattering beats in the song, similar to the soundtrack Kronos Quartet composed for Requiem For A Dream but much more schizophrenic. It's a richly textured tune, much like the rest of the electronic composer's catalog--which tours through the Balkans, Latin America, and the Middle East (check out the operatic drama in "Autology," which contrasts gorgeous vocals with cold, metallic drum beats).
