Welcome to our new Space Discovery!
Today we take you through a journey of unwinding and emotional self-exploration with See Level’s second album Frame of Mine, a lo-fi pop musical painting depicting an inner voyage, in which each track is a gracious brushstroke. See Level, aka Andre Dennis, graphic designer and producer from LA, weaves together the gentle allure of lo-fi aesthetics with the melodic charm of the guitar and other instruments, creating a mesmerizing soundscape that captivates and soothes the heart while stimulating the imagination and a sense of introspection.
It will take less than an hour to listen to all of the 20 tracks in this album, which opens with a quite cinematic and mysterious-sounding piece, Frame of Mine. The minimalist production and subtle use of reverb create a spacious atmosphere, allowing each note to resonate like a soft echo, while the subtle layers of instrumental textures create a cocoon that envelops the listener in a dreamlike state. The first track then liquefies into Off Top Reflections, a more uplifting melody with a laid-back groove that evokes images of hazy, chill afternoons.
See Level uses every instrument and sound he can, and that’s clear in each of his songs, with suggestive wind instruments in A Paused Glance and the way the artist seamlessly blends percussions, piano chords and other gentle instrumental melodies with the soothing sound of birds and ambient elements in Beach on fire. The result is a charming fusion that emulates the serene sounds of nature, in which the music feels like a comforting embrace from the natural world, inviting the listener to find solace within it.
Shadow Self, on the other hand, perfectly captures the feeling of going through a spiritual awakening, in which one has to meet the darker part of themselves, with its deep sounds, gloomy piano chords and low bass. See Level showcases his ability to create atmospheric soundscapes, where ethereal synths, exotic percussions and reverb-drenched guitars intermingle, allowing listeners to drift away into this kaleidoscope of sound. The album is a masterful tapestry of sonic landscapes that effortlessly blend laid-back melodies with evocative rhythms. If you seek a mellow and contemplative musical experience, this album is a great choice that will leave you captivated and yearning for more.
