Unsound – Albums & EPs for Working
Psychedelic forest walks 🌲

Every once in a while you come across a mysterious artist, whom you truly know nothing about. It’s not like Daft Punk, where their names and history are accessible to anyone. It’s more curious than that…

At first glance, you might think that Lakehouse may well be one of the Fake Artists peddled by Spotify and major labels to play the system. In fact, after some thorough digging, it turns out that he/she/they were born out of rock band Innerpartysystem.
Other alumni from IPS include Wuki and Black Caviar who made a particularly great remix of Modjo’s legendary Lady (Hear Me Tonight).
Lakehouse seemingly takes a different approach to its music, though, and instead focuses on a far more relaxed pensive genre of deep house music – particularly with their eponymous EP.
What are my thoughts?
There’s an almost psychedelic quality to the EP’s tracks, from Indian Summer to Fare Thee Well. Glitchy sounds, breakbeats and looping vocal samples talking about the future or Noone Ever Really Sleeps.
The EP combines these great percussive elements with organic instruments like the piano, along with ethereal synthesiser soundscapes painting the backdrop of this lake-side trip.
This EP has fuss-free tracks to help you knuckle down through some of the most intense pieces of work. There are few distractions with vocals or memorable melodies and the tracks gently transport you to a world of deep focus.

A weekly feature of albums and EPs which I have found to be a perfect match for deep, focused work.
