ARTIST / BAND: am architect
ALBUM: The Road to the Sun
FILE UNDER: Electronica / Experimental / Ambient
INFO: The core of A.M. Architect's inviting sound—laid-back, hip-hop-inflected beats paired with Fender Rhodes melodies, acoustic and electric guitar shadings, and an occasional sample—speaks volumes about its appeal. Though it may be a side project for Diego Chavez (aka Aether216) and Daniel Stanush (aka Magic Note, lead guitarist for the Panic Division), there's nothing half-assed about the dozen fresh cuts that compose The Road to the Sun.
