Roger Eno And Brian Eno
I’ve loved Roger Eno’s work ever since I heard “In a Room”. His latest release, Mixing Colours, has calmed my mind the past few days, and it has been splendid. A minute into “Spring Frost”, my feelings of recent weeks that seem to be indescribable, finally make sense. While ominous at times, Mixing Colours leaves the listener feeling at peace with the world for better or worse.
I love all the tracks on this album, especially “Blonde” which is such a gorgeous song and should be added to everyone’s Wedding playlist. Then there’s “Dark Sienna” which is simple and elegant until the bass keys come in, then it’s a new experience where the melody is incredibly fulfilling in the low octave. “Verdigris” sounds like a child’s video game, which makes me so happy. As this album progresses, I can’t help feeling like the Eno brothers are saying goodbye to someone or something, especially in “Snow” and “Rose Quartz” that sound like Radiohead deep cuts.
I absolutely love this collaboration between Roger and Brian Eno. It is both relaxing and dissonant, and will calm your roaming mind. Now is the time to put down your devices more regularly and feel something. Mixing Colours can help you do that.
