Various – “hypocondriac” (Apegenine)

hypocondriac-coverOne-Song-Feature | OK, Today I have to share only one song with you: "Possibilities". I found the track on the average compilation "apegenine volume two" released by the apegenine Label. "Possibilities" from Henrik Jose totally blows me away with its pop-appeal, idm-ish sounds and a beautiful voice. Since I discoverd Henrik Jose on the "Cycles" compilation by Camomille I am a huge fan.

Henrik Jose "Possibilities" (MP3)

I truly love this slightly pathetic voice of Henrik Jose. I adore these little electronic experiments with sounds. And I simply get hooked by the frenetic flavor of "Possibilies". It's warm, enthusiastic and beautiful. It made my day.

The whole compilation called "hypocondriac" doesn't work for me in general. I skipped a lot of the tracks. To many different styles, sometimes to dark, sometimes just boring. There are only two more interesting songs to mention. One is called "jesus was a b-boy (makunouchi bento remix)" which is heavily inspired by the sound of Burnt Friedmann. It's a playful spoken-word-hip-hop-track. And give a listen to "koi"by Kyle Dawkins a simple but warm electronica track.

  • Many people will believe I'm writing this because I feel kind of screwed that my tune doesn't appear here... it would be a silly and easy critic but I'm okay with it anyway.

    I spotted some contradictions in this "review". Actually, what you wanted is to only talk about one track and finally managed to say its an average compilation... but you skipped some tracks and also found it too dark for you.

    What I mean is that in the end, people who read you like a bible will simply avoid the whole compilation because you said it was average... which is somehow bad, after all, it was a compilation released as the last release of both Camomille (netlabel) and Apegenine (label) and its not paying much respect to both of these two projects run by Vincent Fugère who has been in the netlabel scene for a very long time.

    See, I'm just trying to be honest with what I think and couldn't really do anything but comment this post.

  • @kaneel: this is a music review. and i think that even the most positive activism doesn't make a piece of music better. IMO the biggest misunderstanding in netaudio.

  • And I completly agree about these "activism" issues.

    I'm talking about contradictions. If it was written "its average" with the right explanation about why... but here, I read "average" then "skipped" or "too dark for me" and thought that finally, it wouldn't have deserved a "average compilation" but "a compilation we, at phlow, haven't really enjoyed because...".

    I dunno, to me, it sounds like something written quite fast and I think people will highlight in their mind this "average"... I don't know much how to explain it, to me, it's like it was one useless word.

  • some words by the author of this average review - it is truly not well-written, but... some explanation:

    "after all, it was a compilation released as the last release of both Camomille (netlabel) and Apegenine (label) and its not paying much respect to both of these two projects run by Vincent Fugère who has been in the netlabel scene for a very long time."

    To me as a music lover and journalist it doesn't matter if this is the last release to set a point to two amazing netlabels.

    We at Phlow featured Camomille several times hurray-reviews and long interviews - either in german AND english. You find some articles here:

    Camomille: Aus Liebe zum Kamillentee
    V.A. – “Cycles” (Camomille Netlabel)
    Don’t Take Drugs, Take Camomille!

    I think it's prove enough what we think about Camomille. One more word about the review. Before I wrote it, I was thinking: "Should I review only one track I truly lover?!?"

    Than I wrote the review still confused. I still adore Henrik Jose "Possibilities" but I don't listen to the compilation because it's not a well-working compilation to me. Dark Ambient next to frenetic tunes next to IDM. That's not my taste and music journalism is not a sort of objective journalism, it's mainly talking about taste and explaining why you like/dislike it.

    My review is not well-written. Sorry.

  • "who read you like a bible will simply avoid the whole compilation"

    I hope, that's not true. I am no evangelist.

  • ok, one more word: promoters say: "Any promotion, is good promotion!" And in the world of free music is a rare good. And you even can write here to make another point :)

  • Nah it's okay :p
    I've been able to say what I thought about it, you've been able to explain your point, thats the main reason why I was telling mine actually.

    I don't want to be one of these internet trolls who just try to requestion everything you see.

    ps: And of course, I knew you supported Camomille

  • [...] que le daba un sonido muy agradable. Era Possibilities de Henrik José, que luego comprobé que a mo también le había pasado lo mismo y esa coincidencia no podía ser casual, aunque nuestra empatía musical es bastante alta [...]
