Song of the day #6

You  know when you’re looking for something to play, something that suits your mood, then you can’t find it and then you start to get a bit anxious and annoyed. Well whenever I come across this song, it always manages to ease me and seems to sort any mood I may be in. It has a calming effect and brings with it a feeling of contentment that lasts longer than the 8-plus minutes the song plays for.

8 minutes is lengthier than the average song, but time goes unnoticed in Suicide demo for Kara Walker. the song rolls aimlessly from one motion to the next, naturally taking form from a somewhat emotional, placid and dreamy prologue, then crossing over to a soothing saxophone that sets the tone for the remainder of the song. Dan Bajar’s subdued voice then comes in, singing lyrics contributed by artist Kara Walker.

The combination of Bajar’s voice, saxophone, and background flute has this dazing effect that manages to take you somewhere else. It’s definitely the climax of the 2011 album, Kaputt.
