Soul Ipsum – Botanicals (Purr Tapes)


Musical Content: Not much is known about Soul Ipsum. A search online finds very little information. As it should be. This is some gorgeous, mysterious chillwave that stands up to repeated listens. Grooves are sped up and slowed down. Frequencies submerged through low pass filters. Samples come out of nowhere. All compressed into an gooey, analogy aural honey. Rather than a walk on a breezy beach, we’re wading through deep rainforests; the thick mud,  the cleansing downpours and morning mists. And then you hear Sade on a boombox. It works.


Sound Quality and Package: The computer layout and print don’t do the music justice. Nothing fancy here: a clear case, white tape with label. But luckily packaging doesn’t really matter. This is a great release.


Available directly from the Purr Tapes Bandcamp site.
