“Something Isn’t Right” by Herbert

Released 11 years ago, Herbert’s Scale is not only Matthew Herbert’s best album but has also aged well over time. Using over 635 objects for creation including live instruments and vocals, Scale is more deeply rooted in jazz and chamber music than elements more commonly found electronic music. The album is at its best with this track, between its sweeping string section, a hypnotic drum, and bassline and, lastly, near-theatrical vocals, it’s alluring and demands repeated listens.
