Thank goodness for Last.fm! I was listening to my "Arms and Sleepers" (previously blogged about artist here at Chillout Scene) radio station and came across "If You Hear Me Fall" by Australian artist Boy Is Fiction.
If You Hear Me Fall begins with a spacey intro and a great driving beat. It is more of an ambient track that has random high hat hits and offsetting piano chords that build into a beautiful melody. It is blissfully hypnotic and perfect for chillin'. Later in the track, some more synth chords start to build to a magnificent crescendo.
"Should Have Stopped" begins almost as a soundtrack to a final scene in a film with a heart wrenching ending. Then an eclectic beat begins and it takes off into a downtempo almost trance-like track.
There are so many interesting sounds in this music, you have to listen to each track multiple times to hear them all. The artist (not sure if it's one person or multiple) uses a lot of chime sounds for melodies, kind of like Ulrich Schnauss.
I'm making this a short post as I'm heading out of town tomorrow but I would really love to hear more from this great chillout artist! Check out Boy is Fiction on MySpace or LastFM to hear some great chillout tracks!
