Broken Lamps – Metropolis

For the last few weeks I’ve been deep into the new album from Broken Lamps which is exactly what I was expecting from them especially since their previous outing was equally as ear blowing. It’s got all of the elements that a film lover would enjoy especially those that care about the musical backdrop that ties everything together.

Introducing Eric Bowr’s third installment to the Broken Lamps music catalog. Like its predecessor Kaleidoscope, Metropolis continues its journey through 70s production music by experimenting with sounds reminiscent to British music libraries like KPM, Chappell and De Wolfe. While maintaining a feel for retro urban counterculture, the album weaves its way through various film genres like Crime Drama, Eurospy,Exploitation and more! By combining bass driven rhythms and funk horns with organ fueled 60s surf tones, Metropolis transports you to the “odd corners” of a vintage film set with an atmosphere soaked in nostalgia. Consider this record to be the soundtrack to your next need-to-know-only mission or late night rendezvous.
