Squeezebox: Yppah- You are beautiful at all times (2006)

12 12 2010

Just when you think you’ve heard it all, an album appears that offers a familiar but new twist to beat music.  Texan Joe Corrales under the alias Yppah (happy! get it? I didn’t notice for the longest time) offer up a intriguing  collision of styles on his debut.  Fusing eclectic genres: the sonic textures of down tempo electronica, hip-hop break beats with reverbed indie guitars and melodies.  It all blends together for a lush, melancholy version of electronic shoegaze, hip hop thing (genre pending).  Soothing and contemplative, its one of those rare electronic albums that feels like it has a life-force of its own.

9.3/10 -Armordillo
