Younger Brother – The Last Days of Gravity

9 songs, 1.123 hours long

The Last Days of Gravity is the most recent release from another one of Simon Posford’s (Shpongle, Hallucinogen) projects, Younger Brother. This album is probably my favorite of all of Posford’s work, and since I’m moving apartments this week and I haven’t had much of a chance to do any exploring, I’m going to take this opportunity to write about something I consider a modern classic. As usual, Posford’s work is genre-defining, and it’s placed somewhere between psybient and goa trance. The tempo is slow but the songs vary from being heavy to light and beautiful, and the album is somewhat of a journey, as Posford is known for. Personally, I find Younger Brother and Shpongle the best of the Posford projects by a wide margin, and Younger Brother is definitely the lesser-known of the two, and it’s not because of quality. For fans of Shpongle especially, this album is a must-listen. For those who want to know what the best of performed music combined with electronic composition can create, Younger Brother is at the top of the genre. My collection could not be complete without Younger Brother’s The Last Days of Gravity, as well as a few other Posford works that I’ll probably cover some other time.
