Mikah Sykes - Love Consequences and Serenity

36 tracks on an album is a bit overwhelming - isn't it? But in case of Mikah Sykes digital album it is totally ok. His songs range from simple folk tunes over excellent sound experiments/ambient  to nice electronic pop so you never get distracted from listen to this album. And to drop some names, it was partly recorded in John Frusciante's home studio in Los Angeles or K Records/Dub Narcotic Studio in Olympia, Washington.

For A Love My Grace is such a wonderful and lovely piece of Chamber Pop. The clarinet, the bass, the fingerpicking and the light jazzy drums makes it just perfect.

Other noteable songs are the ballade U Broke My Heart N 2, the electronic pop of A Shadow in the Valley (featuring Badsector) or the beautiful forward/backward experimental folktronic piece 3/2.

So get this album for $1 minimum and it will bring you joy for hours, which is priceless.
