music review: Hot Victory

Hot Victory is:

If you like the creepy, foreshadowing soundtrack on Orphan Black, you’ll love the instrumental constructions of Hot Victory. Dark dream sequences. Anthems. Gorgeous sadness. Triumphant moments. A multitude of emotions played out by two complex, talented musicians. You might not expect this Portland, Ore. duo to create such impassioned music but that’s exactly what they’re doing. Dedicated and precise. Unusual instrumentation and compositions blaze the way for this unique, fantastic experience unlike anything you’ll hear in some time. Tribal. Hypnotic. Beautiful geniuses. Infinite possibilities. You’re taken to various realms. It’s a glorious mind escape or freak out or journey. Take it as you want. You’ll get out of it whatever mood you bring to it at the time. Each piece is a sonic work of art to be interpreted by the listener and appreciated on an individual capacity yet shared with others for full effect. Enjoy the journey.
