In what might be their most grandiose, cumulative opus yet, Seattle production duo Blue Sky Black Death have recently put out their album Glaciers. To regard the ambient, shoegaze, and subtly prog rock-coalescing five tracks from the duo as experimental would be an anomaly at this point. A result of a decade’s worth of hip-hop digestion and instrumentalism trialing, BSBD have become a project inextricably related to the utmost explorative and modern-sounding of rap production, having backed the likes of Deniro Farrar and fellow Seattle native Nacho Picasso among others. With most of the tracks surpassing the 10-minute mark, Glaciers in indeed an immersive listen, composed of peaks and valleys of explorative instrumentation, which, as the press release describes, expands and quells in symbiosis with vocal accompaniment from Child Actor, JMSM and Lotte Kestne.
