Menteur - Compile [Experimental/Rock/Binaural/Ect.]

Calling Menteur a "band" isn't entirely accurate. No, Menteur is an experiment. Composed of over 30 artists and bands Menteur is a project that creates quirky and weird binaural music. What is binaural music you ask? Or maybe you didn't ask. Anyways, it's a form of audio mixing and recording that specifically makes the overall sound of the music sound like you're in the exact same room of where it's being performed. And for the most part, that is exactly how this album sounds. Unless you have some garbage wal-mart checkout line ear buds or Beats or whatever it actually does sound like you're in the same room.

As for the actual music, you get a good mix of weird, quirky, avant garde, fun, and beautiful all thrown in together. While the quality of the work varies by artist, the majority of it is very relaxing and enjoyable if you're looking for something to just flip on and relax to. The project also has a lot of other albums released under it's name for free so you should totally give them a look at. 

You can stream, download, or buy Compile here. If you like what you hear, consider supporting Menteur and any of their future projects by throwing a few coins their way. You can also share this album with your friends! They like artistic music where it sounds like you're in the same room as they are... right? Just remember, a little support and a little word of mouth goes a long way! <3
