Colorado-based Riley Schmelter knows how to put together an eclectic, polished piece of work. Each recording is remarkably miked and balanced, despite his use of disparate sounds and instruments. “Tantrum” integrates plenty of electro noise and feedback elements as well as the artist’s fx’d vocals that deliver a heavy, screaming bridge. “Kope” brings a pop-punk vibe, but it is experimental and unpredictable, with beeps, bells and (synth) whistles, and vocals delivered via megaphone. His 11-minute “Venus” has great guitar noodling and a heavy metal section. From what we hear, this 19-year-old artist is well worth watching as he develops his identity.
