YL Hooi - Untitled
An impressionistic, stunning album by Melbourne based musician YL Hooi. Co-produced with Tarquin Manek (LST, M. Quake), this collection of peaceful, synth and electric keyboard based songs was recorded between 2017-2019. One highlight is the cover of Love Joys' "Stranger", morphing into a cathedral hymn, the keyboard's high vibrato underlying long-held trumpet tones and softly delayed guitar plucks all plays out with the added ambience of birds' chirps. Where this album shines is in its diversity of sounds, melodies and pace - each song is a distinct and memorable moment. Sensuous in texture, this is an album to play ∞ - any time of day.
