Buildings and Food Share FM am
A month or so ago, I encouraged you to check in on Buildings and Food, as Jen Wilson had just announced that there would be another album, Up Down Strange Charm. With a new single below, you can now dip your toes deeper into the proverbial waters. While “Streetlights” had Wilson employing softened vocals, “FM a.m.” is a full dive into Jen’s instrumental IDM work, which is what makes up a great deal of the new LP. On my end, I always get attached to minute details, like the very subtle little change in direction around 1:18 with a different keyboard line coming through. It’s these effortless little direction changes that illustrate the artistry throughout the Buildings and Food catalogue, drawing me in every single time. If you’re so inclined, Up Down Strange Charm is out September 25th!
