Music Thoughts: Rilo by Seams

NOTE: The above embed is the official music video, but the song itself is about 2 minutes longer than it.

I like this song overall. It’s got a nice, ambient, main beat. The various notes sprinkled throughout the first half give it just the right amount of added noise to not make it too repetitive. The alternating notes that open the second half has this cool, almost “electronic rain” sound. What I don’t really like though is the last 90 seconds – which aren’t part of the video embedded above. This last part just doesn’t have the same feel as the rest of the song, almost like it was added on (which, considering this song was originally conceived as two separate songs, it might’ve been). Still, it’s worth listening to for those first two-thirds.

Download the song for free from Rolling Stone’s website.
Seams’ album, Quarters, will be released September 30, 2013 and will be available from the iTunes store and Amazon MP3.
