Drift Ep. 5, Part 4 - Tree And Two Chairs (Film Edit)
Not had the email yet but just found this on Tidal... so far it's not showing on the streaming sites... I'm sure it'll be up soon though...

Edit- here's the official info now-

"Find a club somewhere you’d never expect one to exist. Walk into a crowd that’s collectively spellbound by the music. Join them, hooked in, surrounded by a swirl of sound that’s forever one step ahead of you. You’ll never want to leave."



If you like… Cups, Crocodile, Banstyle… then Tree and Two Chairs belongs to you.

Long track but constantly evolving. Really like it.

Re: Drift Ep. 5 Part 4 - Tree And Two Chairs
Yeah Holding the Moth was what I thought of immediately too. An at first (before the album came out) pretty cool minimalist techno track they played live that they mutated into horribly noodly jazz house elevator nonsense on the album.

And this is 13 minutes of noodly jazz house elevator nonsense. Constantly evolving into nothing. Ugh. Really, UW keep surprising me with being able to produce some really awesome music like

or


or


and then wasting their time with stuff like this.

Ah, I love it. Definite Mosaic/DeepArch/Hamburg Hotel vibes in it. Those tracks didn't necessarily evolve into something, they just spread out a nice, chill ambiance. Hardly challenging, but certainly not a waste of time, it's so well made. Puts me in a good mood and helps move along the workday (13 minutes gone in a flash, never bored, so hit repeat!)

Edit: second listen in, I'm noticing some very cool countermelodies. Rocking subtle bassline, specifically.

Re: Drift Ep. 5 Part 4 - Tree And Two Chairs
Personally I really like this one, but I completely understand why some Underworld listeners wouldn't. Simply put, this doesn't sound like Underworld. The Holding the Moth comparison is apt; starts out with some recognizably Underworld business and evolves into something that sounds like generic music people here in the backgrounds at cocktail parties. Fortunately for me I happen to like both of those things, but I'd definitely like it more if it was more Underworldy.

Writing all that out I started to wonder if what we think of as generic is what Underworld thinks is exciting, simply by virtue of how un-Underworld generic music is. I fear Underworld thinks something that sounds like Underworld is generic, when nothing could be further from the truth.

Re: Drift Ep. 5 Part 4 - Tree And Two Chairs
I really love this one. The mellow vibe is quite nice and indeed reminds me of Banstyle and Cups. I love the combination of laid back beach vibes with at times a melancholic feel. *hits repeat*

Re: Drift Ep. 5 Part 4 - Tree And Two Chairs
Perfect combination of minimal techno and jazzy feel and its driven by so well made drums. Thats really the best part of it for me. Subtle Cups reference for me. Perfect. Just perfect, I really hope this goes on an album. There could be some instrumentals, like Hamburg Hotel and this is no worse than Hamburg Hotel itself. This is perfect mood, on repeat here.
