Martin Philip - butler
Synthpop Coming home after a busy day, I am rather tired. And I am most glad that I am reviewing Martin Philip's butler, a synthpop artist. It's a nice little album by a rather peaceful musician. I do enjoy Philip's style, as well. By that, I mean I enjoy how he shows off his personality. I was looking at his bio on his site, and it made me smirk quite a few times. He drinks fast cups of coffee and slow cups of teas, he is slightly worn and dignified, and prefers not directly answering most questions.

Now, as much as I may like the guy, it's his musical talents that I really should be mentioning here and now. And, sadly, I really don't have much to be saying about this album. I liked the story that is woven in the whole thing, however, nothing exactly stands out quite too much. I mean, I enjoy it, no doubt about that, but it's not really eye popping.

Such as right now, as I sit here and listen to Being Held Aloft, I find myself thinking that this is mellow and charming at the same time, and that the vocals provided are definitely suited for synthpop, but, once more, nothing is really going on to really get me shaking my head and saying, "This guy is definitely better than the rest."

And, well, I suppose I should end this here. Going on and on would just make me continue repeating myself, and I have never been a fan of doing that. I like to say what I need to say and then get out of the situation as fast as possible. So, with that said, I bid all of you adieu.

I've been writing for Brutal Resonance since November of 2012 and now serve as the editor-in-chief. I love the dark electronic underground and usually have too much to listen to at once but I love it. I am also an editor at Aggressive Deprivation, a digital/physical magazine since March of 2016. I support the scene as much as I can from my humble laptop.
