Feb. 22, 2013 - PRLog -- Scenery, a group of Phoenix electronic musicians, released their fourth full-length album on February 22nd, 2013. The LP is entitled “Humdrum” and will be available for free with the option to donate from the band’s website:

“We tried to get away from our laptops for a bit and focus on playing physical instruments,” Scenery member Troy Harris said. “We are always striving to make electronic music sound more human and I’m proud of what we’ve accomplished here.”

Scenery specializes in eclectic songs and Humdrum is no exception. Lead single, “Crashing Down” features crackling percussion mimicking a world falling apart while “Kinderen” is built upon fragile acoustic guitar fragments and the angelic backing vocals of popular Phoenix musician, Michelle Blades. Blades also appears on “My Grimey Dreams” which recalls the frantic panic of a fever dream through distorted bass and otherworldly vqvrd sounds. “Godish” is a spoken word tale told over droning shoegaze guitar.

The lyrics focus on memories of the past, forgotten ambitions and time wasted. “My dreams sadly, just ain’t what they used to be,” Blades sings on “My Grimey Dreams”. “I have left all the tall tales / Start to think this is all for real,” Harris sings on Left All. Dreams and the imperfection of our memories play a key role in the music. The instrumental song, “Mirage” echoes barely remembered vocal fragments and repeating melodies over distant sounding percussion.
Most of the songs on Humdrum were recorded for RPM Challenge 2012 where the goal is to record an entire album in one month.

Humdrum is available to download from
