With songs ranging from enchanting to haunting, head bobbing to subtly soothing, Legacy Vietnam Files is an incomparable artistic interpretation that is well worth experiencing.
Favorite track: Huey Angels of Death.
For me personally, this album offers much to be experienced. The graphics are visually striking and compelling. The tracks offer many different layers to explore. At the same time the music is soothing, I find the sampling of voice tracks to be very thought provoking. A well designed and well executed concept. My congratulations and thanks.
Favorite track: Recruits.
A second chapter in the VSSR collection, “Legacy” delves into the military conflict known as the Vietnam War. Told through an omniscient perspective, the conceptual journey spans a timeline depicting psychological tactics used in basic training, the chaos of jungle warfare, to the GIs return to the world. Following the formula of the VSSR genre, each track’s soundscape is intended to transport the listener to an alternate realm.
Finding inspiration from organ drones coupled with haunting harmonics of the sakura pentatonic scale, the selection of dusty vinyl, guitar/amp feedback, and layered drums, give life to a retro sound bed of instrumentation. Conceived and produced by the Japan based artist PNTKS, “Legacy” furthers the VSSR design of challenging the listener with expressive and powerful compositions.
