Upon hearing the symphonic music coming from Sound Strider’s EP, Intrepid Travels, it’s easy to see why he’s best described as a musician who lets the spirits move him. Intrepid Travels nicely blends Sound Strider’s philosophical inspired beats with old school spacey and organic sounds.
Five tracks that sound completely different from each other make up this EP which will definitely leave listeners feeling as though they just heard something new, almost revolutionary. The leadoff track “The Stakes” cleverly combines rich danceable beats with President Lyndon Johnson’s famous 1964 political ad “Daisy” which he narrates, “These are the stakes, to make a world where all of God’s children can live,” immediately following a nuclear countdown. Who would ever think of putting that with music? But it works, as do the rest of the tracks which, despite it going all over the place musically, is consistently an enjoyable listening experience.
