Since 1994, James Lavelle and Tim Goldsworthy have been creating unique and diverse tracks as Unkle, which once included DJ Shadow, who has always been favorite of mine. This British collaboration has had a series of guest artists on their albums, the first being Psyence Fiction in 1998. I fell in love the first time I heard it.
Since then, they have released four other albums and continue to showcase their talent for mixing different styles of music but keeping a certain sound that is only owned by them. The album art for Psyence Fiction has a collage and grafitti-esque feel expressed through various tones of brown and texture. A nice palette to look to for a neutral foundation.
Aphex Twin was a big part of my youth. As I got older his music played roles in special memories of mine, ones I would never forget. When certain sounds find their way into your life and act as a soundtrack, you know its good. This is just one of albums that I really connected with. Just the light, airy sounds and unique combination of ambient beats took me to another place. There surely is no other to compare to Aphex Twin.
The album artwork is grungy and distorted, with the color of rust the main character. The play with light really creates a beautiful array of tone and shadow, while it goes from cream to orange and then to brown. And with the texture these colors display behind it, you just wish you could feel its beauty.
This is a nice palette to take in consideration when using warm hues in your home or event. Orange has so many shades, from tangerine to the carrot color we all know, and you can find a lot of them here. The same with yellow and brown, which also incorporates the red family. A whole lot of warmth resonates from this album, both inside and out.
Baroness is up again. How can I not include all their albums in these palettes? Each one is awesome. Yellow and Green is very earthy with its textured browns and golden yellows. A few pops of color help the neutrals bounce a bit as well. And as strange as the artwork seems, what beautiful line work and shading Baizley presents us. Such a super skilled and unique artist.
These soft hues are great for any interior space you want to relax in. Would be nice used in a kitchen to brighten up the space for a cheery feel or even a children’s room or bedroom for a calming, and nature inspired look.
