it seems just right to be listening to eliot lipp during a season like the fall. the way daylight so quickly changes into night, watching the colors of dead leaves blend into one another, tasting the slight bitterness of cold wind on yr tongue. for many, autumn is considered a season of change and for myself, its my own private magic time.

originally from tacoma to los angeles to brooklyn.. eliot lipp makes lo-fi ambience full of electronic hip-hop carefully layered with 1970s sampled funk rhythms and raw, fragile synth riffs. theres so much thought gathered into these fresh beats as it seems almost too personal when the song completes. its amazing to find so much hidden inside unspoken silence and peculiar melody that makes a listener keep repeating until the longevity of the meaning is found. however, theres no direct destination or answer to be sought in eliot’s music, only the idea to get truly lost in the sound.

nuetral [leo 123 remix] *** highly recommended

rap tight [from immediate action #10 2005]

eye sore [from the days digital ep 2006]

glasspipe [from tacoma mockingbird 2006]

About The Author

“One glimpse is all it takes to tell you that Music Is Art is something special. You can start by judging this blog by its cover—it’s one of the best-designed, most aesthetically aware music blogs around—but there’s much more to it than just a pretty template. For one, Danielle, the “dreamer/designer” behind MIA, focuses not only on excellent music, but on art, photography and writing and how they all intersect and inform the music. By sharing the sounds and sights that inspire her, she’s inspiring a growing number of readers on a daily basis. By documenting artists’ creative processes, she’s, in the process, creating a pretty substantial, always-evolving work of art herself.” - Nerd Litter
