Welder is the side project of San Francisco based producer Brendan Angelides. Angelides may perhaps be better known for his main project, Eskmo Angelides blends a vast variety of complex off time melodies, with weird samples and sounds that sometimes make you cringe [in a good way]
His side project, Welder stays equally as busy as Angelides himself, having released two E.P.'s, a remix album, and two Full Lengths in the last five years. The newest being his Full Length album "Floresence" Clocking in at 11 tracks and just under an hour, the album is quite the listen.
Upon first listen, I was impressed with the notable difference Welder takes when holding songs together. I had always been drawn to Eskmo because of the breaks in between the madness, when the song would actually hold together for some time. Welder, however is quite different in that all of the songs seem to hold a solid structure, and have grooves that consistently build on top of each other.
Some favorite tracks off my first listen through would have to be "L…Carousel…C", "Be My Light", and the title track, "Floresence"
Welder is without a doubt a different breed, and I challenge anyone to give his work a listen. I've really enjoyed this album so far.
