Writing Music Review: Tycho

I first became aware of Tycho through the excellent podcast Song Exploder. While I definitely intellectually enjoy all of the Song Exploder episodes, I don’t always enjoy the music.

Sometimes I do, and discover that the song featured on the podcast is unlike most of what the album’s like. (This is one reason I love preview features so much, especially as they’re done on Bandcamp.)

And sometimes, just sometimes, I discover that the entire discography has the same spirit and quality that got me interested in the first place.

That describes my experience with Tycho.

Tycho is slightly electronic, slightly acoustic, slightly chill, slightly atmospheric, slightly beat-driven, slightly ambient.

Yeah, I know.

It has enough energy to get you moving, but enough class to get out of the way and let you do the rest of your work. In my book, that makes it excellent writing music.

You can get Tycho’s work at most digital stores (Amazon, Bandcamp, iTunes, Google); you can preview “Awake” (which sucked me in) below via Bandcamp, and check out the Song Exploder episode as well!
