When I was in college for my undergraduate degree, I had an incredibly tough first year. I would go to the park near my dorm, lie on the grass and stare up at the trees and listen Beaucoup Fish by Underworld on repeat, on my discman (remember those??)
I found the thrumming rhythms and hypnotic beats soothing. Some of the songs have a bittersweet sadness to the vocals (Cups, Winjer) and others have a very dancy, upbeat feel (Push Upstairs, Bruce Lee, Kittens.)
Beaucoup Fish is available to download or stream on Hoopla Digital right now.
For a different take on some of the same songs, check out Underworld’s live album Everything, Everything too. Live electronica albums are a bit different than your traditional live albums.
