THE ALBUM WAS WRITTEN, PERFORMED, PRODUCED, MIXED, AND MASTERED 100% BY CHARLES LANEY.
The albums reserved musical approach magnifies the blunt scene-setting.
Charles Laney thrives on contrasts. His lyrics are filled with first-person accounts of a grim adolescence and isolated moments of anguish that feel both live-in and distance all at once. The beats are hits. Even in the midst of chaos, Charles high sound splits through these walls of sound like a hairline fracture..
The content of Charles is great. His album titled ‘Midnight and Lion’ is produced entirely by Charles Laney. Distorted samples and peppy 8o8’s permeate nearly every track, creating atmosphere somewhere between the glossy minimalism of his. Though it’s far from his most exciting music, the albums reserved musical approach magnifies the blunt scene.
The vocals are mega-boosted by the instrumentals, which are like mini-museums, full of dazzling sound sculptures and little moments of reverb-rapture that feels as delicate as they are precious.
Check it out and feel the greatness.
