What’s a Tesaurus?

Album cover for Monokle's Tesaurus

There is some real good netlabel stuff out there (Elliptic and several of Tom Larson’s mixes come to mind), but the recent iD.EOLOGY release of Monokle’s Tesaurus is something extra special. Summed up by the album’s description:

Music can act as something like an emotional anchor. Listening to some old songs will conjure up past experiences, situations and moods and will transport the listener into that state of mind he was in back then.

Tesaurus is a great blend of electronic samples with guitar and piano. It’s minimalistic (I’m all about minimalism, you know), introspective without being overly analytical, nostalgic without all the extra remorse. Ever heard millennium-era Steven Gutheinz? Tesaurus is something like that. Minimalism with meaning. Good for adding color to old memories during a long train ride. I likie very much.

    There’s nothing like a Google search. Try looking for the term “netlabel”. Most of the netlabel sites I frequent specialize in electronic / dance tracks, but I’m sure there are other genres out there, including pop. Many netlabel tracks are free to download, btw.
