Brock Berrigan – “The Scenic Route”

Seven months after the strong “Cadillac Mountain” Brock Berrigan is back with new quality music.

As usual, the New Yorker convinces on “The Scenic Route” with a nice sample selection (even if you already know one or the other) and in between he also includes some LoFi beats.

Brock states: Made most of this album on the road in Utah overlooking canyons and hiking through national parks. All the background sounds were recorded in Utah, including the Native American chants. This is a culmination of my ten years of making beats, combining everything I have learned along the way into this album. I wanted to convey the feeling of driving through the desert in a convertible into musical form, taking the scenic route. 

The only guest is Allem Iversom, who is featured on three of the 14 tracks.
