Drawing on otherworldly ambient soundscapes, mellow beats and the uplifting vibes of devotional music, Awkward Corners provide the soothing musical balm that our ears need right now.
Awkward Corners is the project of multifaceted Chris Menist, who among many other things is the percussionist for The Paradise Bangkok Molam International Band and co-founder of Paradise Bangkok record label.
The album titled ‘Dislocation Songs’ was initially started as a reaction to the UK post-Brexit vote and move towards isolation. But, it also feels hugely relevant right now as the world struggles in this unsettling time with the global pandemic.
We all need music right now, so to help ease your troubled minds, we’re sharing one of the records standout cuts. On ‘I’ll Do It Tomorrow’, Menist serves up nearly five minutes of musical therapy. The tracks journey takes in both organic conga and percussion sounds with gentle electronic synth lines, and dub effects punctuated throughout, pulling the listener into the dreamy atmosphere.
