Song: “The Motion Makes Me Last” (from the album Similes)
Eluvium is known for his signature ambient drones and soundtrack-esque climactic instrumentals. Similes is his first foray into using vocals and percussion in his music and, if you ask me, it’s working for him. Paired up with a crisp, single-shot, panning landscape of his hometown of Portland, Oregon, it makes for a few sublime minutes.
You can stream Similes online at NPR this week. The full length will be in stores next Tuesday, February 23.
