Joakim Water Bubblicious EP
Last weekend I was able to download a sample of Joakim's new Album "Milky Ways" due out in America on September 15, 2008. From the first two songs off the Watermelon Bubblicious EP I can tell this is going to be a hot one. It's been two years since he release "Monsters & Silly Songs" and it looks like he has been busy building tracks specifically for the dance floor. The title track, "Watermelon Bubblicious" almost has a breaks feel to it with a nasty rolling distorted bass line that clashes with an electric piano/synth harp. "Nebula Laughter" is a nine minute electro orchestra track that builds layer upon layer until the only thing left is an ethereal guitar that drifts off in the distance. I am really excited to hear what else Joakim has up his sleeve in September.
