Perfect for Someone Looking for Something NewPosted .
A Quick Fix of Melancholy is not for everybody, but it may be my favorite Ulver release. It's twenty minutes of well produced sadness and poetry. The first track, "Little Blue Bird" begins with a startling upstart of strings that will catch your immediate attention. It's quickly joined by electronic noise and glitches which then lead to Garm's voice, deep and perverse. The next track, an instrumental, will lead you through a bizarre world of noise and electronic bells. The drumming on this track is flawless and sounds as if it were underwater. Unlike anything I've ever heard. The third track simply called "Vowels" is possibly the best on the EP. It's a haunting hymn of the emotionality of human beings. Garm uses his singing to toss the listener back and forth by changing pitch effortlessly. The final track is a remix of a song from their second album, Kveldssanger, an album consisting of nothing but acoustic guitar and a capella singing, into a fantastic display of music. Like I said, this EP is not for everyone, but it's some of the best music I've ever heard. So if you're looking for a new sound and you're open to different music, I strongly urge you to purchase this EP.I would recommend this to a friend
