Curtis Macdonald - Suburban Prairie CD Cover

Moody and melancholic image inducing piano melodies are wrapped around edgy synths, ponderous industrial ambience and driving dance club beats.

It opens with the awakening of the day of “Community Sunrise” followed by the traveling landscape of “Suburban Prairie”. It continues with the serene melancholy of “Sea of Trees” into the pulsing “Pedestrian Paradise” which is followed by the leisure induced “Pools Palms and Lawns”. The contemplative ballade “The American Dream”, flows into the driving mellowness of “Mall Marauders” and concludes with the hypnotic “Surviving Gridlock”.
