Fortune Howl's 'Earthbound' is a genius balance of deconstructed melody and focused rhythm

Fortune Howl – Earthbound
Relief in Abstract
★★★★ (out of 5 stars)

As breakout Internet star XXYYXX embarks to conquer the world in person, Fortune Howl lines up as the heir apparent on the hot, future-minded Orlando label Relief in Abstract. This album has all the microcosmic sound-sculpting an electronic head could want to make even the most mundane everyday task levitate with womb-like poetry. But what makes them different – and this is key to Fortune Howl’s genius – is that there’s always a big payoff, a moment when all the dreamy swimming snaps into sharp, rhythmic, epiphanic focus. Earthbound packs enough detail, structure and purpose to flirt with the sensory intrigue of sonic dematerialization without the danger of slipping into nothingness. It’s the complete junction of evocative soundscaping and intelligent beatmaking.
