“Where Beasts Die,” from Bruno Miguel and Melissa Veras of Papercutz, is folklore passed down through a mellow acoustic melody and angelic vocals, surely influenced by Miguel’s native Portugal.
In Brooklyn-producer Sweater Beats’ reincarnation, the vocals haunt a lush electronic forest, sometimes permeating sweeping synths and alluring beats to provide moments of digital restraint. The result is a track worth dying to.
I know it sounds ridiculous, considering all possible choices in the entire world, but this track is otherworldly. It’s a vocal passage through an electronic haze to a braver side of life. It’s also a track that makes you appreciate the living, the artists who challenge defined musical genres successfully.
