Sqrtofneg1 - "October Hangout"

Opening with a familiar piano chord progression, Sqrtofneg1 is quick to defy listener's expectations with some atonal jazz shifts. "October Hangout" continues to twist in surprising directions, with the occasional triumphant trumpet blast matched in equal measure by synth glissandos and heavy bass plucks. Though the songwriting is creative, the song is held by back the tonality of some of the VSTs; in particular, the 0:45 mark sounds a bit sterile, cheap. Overall, an enjoyable track which would benefit from further processing and a more triumphant conclusion - although perhaps that is part of defying our expectations.
