Fluid, ethereal grooves and smoky ambient stylings fuel the downbeat vibe of "Mycelia," the seductive new release from Freeplay Indie Artists Root Valdez. With a jazzy eclectic set of irresistably spacey electronic beds, breathy rhythms and hypnotic vocals, this crisp electro-rock set is highly sophisticated and on-point. Check out "Through The Ice," a turbocharged jazz-rock track featuring clean, melodic guitars and a sexy fretless bassline that meld for a flitting, frenetic groove that churns forward like an underground river. Dig "Counting The Hours," a somber, catatonic ambient track that incorporates distant, echoing electric guitars, horn synths and ghostly vocals that evoke a heightened sense of awareness. "Of All I Wanted" is a cavernous electronic track featuring robotic drums and bell tones, with a building theme of realization and calm that is like glass under water. These wistful, original tracks are cerebral yet inspiring, with a consummately mesmerizing aura that will fill the room with a magical, almost spiritual sentiment. Don't miss Root Valdez's "Mycelia," now available for preview and purchase on Freeplay Indie!
