bpb - Monster Waters

Runtime: 47:20

'Monster Waters' marks an ominous conceptual outing for bpb and is arguably their most narratively oriented album to date. Recorded in 2021, 'Monster Waters' seeks to reflect the dour atmosphere of the modern day, sourcing inspiration and sample material from bygone musical periods. bpb employs electronic recordings from the early 60s up to the 80s and imbues them with the aesthetic of 90s video game music, replete with gurgling environmental foley and distorted sound design, to compose an aquatic journey across treacherous underwater realms.

This unique approach makes for a listening experience which spurs us to account for musical expressions across many different eras and to draw the thread of gloom which so permeates all of human history beyond just our immediate oppressive moment in culture. It is a fittingly mangled narrative weaving, as bpb's penchant for noise takes keen application here in replicating retro video game soundscapes and tingeing our story with a feel of perpetual unrest.
