WeInterviewedIt: Evenings

I've been following Charlotteville based producer Nathan Broaddus aka Evenings, fairly closely since he dropped the North Dorm EP in June of last year. When I first heard the album, it was the soundtrack for the weeks that followed. The relaxed, organized rhythms fit quite perfectly with the lo-fi vocal samples, diced guitar, and grainy soundscape textures.

In his newest release Lately, Evenings emphasizes the soundscapes hinted at in North Dormand brings out a new arsenal of textures & melodies to create a lush collection of atmospheric tunes simply hard not like. Cassette textures and mic out-the-window soundscapes lay the backdrop for a palette of spacey bells and subtle synths accompanied by melodic guitar blips and riffs. My personal highlight is [I] Softly we Go, an 8 minute long dive into absolut bliss. The song starts as a mix of close plucked guitar, with a drippy sliding sine sound held together delicately by a sparse percussion. At its peak the song turns into a full fledge rhythmic ecstasy, cunningly short lived. Evenings then provides the song [II] leees later in the album for those aching for a taste of the beat again. This is album is bound to be in heavy rotation, a swell sophomore release. can't wait to hear what comes next. Keep reading below for our interview w/ Evenings.
