Music Thoughts: Natural Selection by Alexander von Mehren

“Natural Selection” comes from Alexander’s upcoming album, Aeropop. It begins with a one minute introductory piano-lead piece. This opening is quite serene in nature and gives the song a relaxing start. In the next part, the piano becomes sharper and serves as the main beat while other instruments (and the vocalists) gradually join in. By the time the guitars enter, the song has built up to an appealing combination of sounds that carry it to the final part of the song. This final part is another slow piano piece that serves as nice way to end the song.

The song is available to download for free from Rolling Stone’s website.
Aeropop will be released August 20, 2013 and can be pre-ordered from Amazon.com.
