Static Diary is the first solo album from Centro-Matic’s keyboard wizard Scott Danbom and it came out on Goliad Media on the 27th of July. The atmosphere carries me to a place somewhat similar to Grandaddy or Mercury Rev, but there’s also a lot more to this blissfully weird and endearingly beautiful adventure. I might not normally recommend records that contain experimental ambient moods, but this one has the magic to make my prejudices disappear. What an enchanting album to get lost into. Here’s a few of my own favorites, but you really need to get onboard and experience the whole journey. Preferably with good headphones.
Oh and thanks to Daniel Markham for introducing this record to me.
