RECORD OF THE WEEK

The Northern Hemisphere – Jupiter Protects You

This is the fourth release from Terrence Drew Miller aka The Northern Hemisphere. I don’t know any of the previous three releases but going by the music on this release, I will be seeking out his other music. This album is 14 tracks long coming in at over 74minutes long. Track lengths vary from just under 2 minutes to over 11 minutes in length.

This project took about 1 year to complete, and he describes this release as an abstract year old experiment to create soundscapes and miniature soundtracks for things that would otherwise not include sound. The sound certainly is varied throughout the album starting with the downtempo, minimal 1st track Dinner At The Movies. The album meanders along with electronic tracks with nice beats and a slight sprinkling of IDM for good measure, the more ambient tracks he produces are also very nice as he throws in a slightly different effect to keep the music alive and breathing. I like the mix of sounds that he creates, mixing piano with electronic sounds and beats and ambient soundscapes. He also throws in a fair amount of different percussive sounds which keep the sound very interesting.

He lists his influences as Imogen Heap, Sigur Ros, Enya, Brian Eno, Coldplay, Air and The Album Leaf. But I think the main influence is himself with the time and effort that he put into this release.
