Tooth by Raime.

Bandcamp Link: Tooth

Raime is known for being, I dunno, kind of “goth” electronica. Spare, moody instrumentals. Dark.

Tooth is their most recent album.

There is a danger with sample and loop based music. Let’s call it “accretive music”. The challenge is providing enough variety, that it isn’t apparent you are simply playing several samples against each other. The equivalent of running two metronomes, simultaneously, at two different tempos.

I’m not sure that “tooth” rises to that challenge.

About all I can think about, as I listen, is identifying the loops, and hearing them play out.

There’s no real tension created, just a slight sense of atmospheric dread.
