Charles Korpics’ bedroom project, KorpX, is everything you want from a talented musician working on a hobby project. His tracks are short and simple, but simultaneously elegant. It’s instrumental indie-pop with a full body that chases easy.
Listening to “Placemat for Baby” causes just as much nostalgia as reading the title. A mellow guitar line floats over a hoppy bass line that makes your eyes lose focus. Remember those short anime videos that would float around Tumblr? They were a little washed out, and would focus on a teenager doing something mundane, like doing homework and staring out the window into the rain. They sort of celebrated those little moments that we forget are special too? That is “Placemat for Baby.”
