Soulo

Soulo (2009)

We talk about the inevitable, but most people are afraid to even glance forward. Soulo levitate from a point on the horizon and land on our step. Not to say that Soulo is courageous. Soulo is inward reflective rock... unsteady.

Is it romantic to soften the hardness of a soundtrack to a break dancing video game? Is it worthwhile to enliven the new-age fugue with a surprise ending? Does science gain moral obligation when it teams up with the hopes and risks that art rolls with? Or does the art lose its sense?

Soulo's music is too discreet to be rock, too jammin' to be ambience, and too eventual to be the blues. But you could use any title from the Jimi Hendrix song book to name any given Soulo track.
