Fat Roland's top ten comfort listens - 7: B12's Electro-Soma

Number 7 in my top ten comfort-listens is B12's Electro-Soma.

Album name: Electro-Soma

Artist: B12

Who they sound like according to Spotify's recommendations: The Black Dog, Two Lone Swordsmen, LFO

Most comforting musical element: The completeness of the album, which is remarkable considering how it was patched together

Least comforting musical element: Nothing, shut up with your stupid question, this is a bang-to-rights classic, and slightly makes up for the face I've included no Aphex Twin in this list

What it's like being smothered by (in a good way): A hundred androids with their soft, stroking metal hands and tickly jagged antenna.

Comfort food it should be paired with: A nice bucket of circuit boards sprinkled with that spicy red salt everyone seems to like these days

Public figure I would recommend this album to so they can chill the heck out: Deckard out of Blade Runner because I believe he had trouble with a few androids and this album makes robots sound kinda okay

What the opposite of this album sounds like: This album is the diametric opposite of beardy folk music, which as we all know is the worst kind of music
