The New LoFi

Ten Years

tUnE-yArDs Lions

Just because I’m on this tune-yards kick, I thought I’d pull out one of my favorite tracks from the 2009 Bird-Brains album. Lions was recorded on a digital voice recorder and put together with some super basic software. It’s a hypnotic and melancholy song using a ukulele, LoFi beats, some static, field recordings and a toy like synth. As simple as it sounds, you couldn’t replicate the mystery, authenticity or richness in this track with the best recording equipment in the world. Get the album on iTunes here.
