Every once and a while you come across a band that seems to just click with you. It was about this time last year when I discovered Carbon Based Lifeforms (CBL), and I have been completely hooked on them ever since. In fact, I like a lot of the stuff from the groups signed with Ultimae, but it’s CBL I sink most of my money into. It’s been a long time that just about every single release of a given group has moved me the way CBL has. For me, they are just frakin’ awesome.
It was a post Martin Lindhe (a.k.a. Bassic) had posted on his Facebook wall that turned me onto CBL. It went something to the effect of “Can’t seem to get Interloper by CBL out of constant rotation lately”, or something like that. So I went and checked out Interloper and I was hooked. I immediately turned back around and swooped up World of Sleepers and Hydroponic Garden. And I’m dying to get my hands on Twentythree.
I can honestly say, that at some point during each day when I’m coding, I shuffle up my collection of CBL to code by.
If you are into Ambient Music, I highly recommend you check them out.
I certainly like all their tracks, but probably my favorites are listed below if you want a direct sampling of their music:
- MOS 6581
- Frog (Absolutely LOVE this one)
- Set Theory
- Betula Pendula
I hope you enjoy!
