“Keyboard Milk” – Röyksopp

This is a B-side track off of Röyksopp’s latest single “Forsaken Cowboy.”  Honestly, I’m a little surprised “Keyboard Milk” isn’t the single itself.  This epic song is a 7 minute journey that slowly builds, adding many layers and sounds.  The brooding tension continues to pulsate into the start of the sample (around 4.5 minutes or so) and finally when you can’t take it anymore we’ve reached our destination-all shimmering and bright.  The sudden change from the dark, heavy sounds into a much lighter, spacier theme is one of the highlights.  Even in the shift of mood the ever present drums carry you through and provide the string that ties it all together.

Picking just 30 seconds proved challenging – I would highly recommend getting out the whole piece here.
