Brendan Angelides is a Los Angeles based music producer & composer who records and performs live as Eskmo. His multi-genre works have been featured on influential labels like Ninja Tune, Warp, Planet Mu and most recently, the small Belgium label that first introduced the world to Aphex Twin, Apollo (the sidearm of R&S.)
Inspired by our life giving planetary body, Eskmo’s new album “SOL” is a masterful meditation on human emotional plane as effected by planetary bodies. Angelides has delivered perhaps his strongest musical statement yet.
Written, produced and recorded over the course of a year on the Eastside of Los Angeles in his home studio, SOL’s epic grandeur bears the traces of Angelides’s recent work composing orchestral pieces for live performance with the LA based Echo Society.
From the moody cinematic opening of ‘SpVce’ and exhalting synth melodies of ‘Combustion’, to the touching delicacy of the watery ballad ‘Blue And Grey’ to ‘Mind Of War”s tromping existential digi-funk, the heartbreaking piano paen of ‘Tamara’, to the snarling drone saturation of the title track, to the beaming, epic euphoria of ‘The Sun Is A Drum’ it’s clear that this is a record that is a truly cinematic experience.
