Opening with spacey piano chords and gloomy filtered vocals, More Harm Than Good Part 1: Here For Now's intent is clear from the get-go: to embark its listener on a serenading yet thought-provoking journey. Clocking in around the 25-minute mark, MHTG Part 1 is NOMVDSLVND debut EP on Toronto-based imprint Bedroomer. Through dreamy textures and sonic experimentations, this record manages to create its own musical universe with genre-bending hip-hop instrumentals, ambient pads and soothing atmospheric elements. Cuts like "Astound" or "Block" will invite you to reflect upon the simple and mesmerizing beauty of sounds surrounding us. And as a whole, this release will leave you counting down the days to MHTG second part, scheduled this spring.
MHTG Part 1 is: NOMVDSLVND debut EP on Toronto label Bedroomer.
Sounds like: An experimental take on Brainfeeder-esque hip-hop instrumentals and electronic productions.
