It was Natalie Walker who informed me about Dive Index, the brainchild of minimalist electronica producer Will Thomas. Dive Index’s debut album, Mid/Air, combined IDM glitch with quality songwriting in a style somewhat reminiscient of Björk, yet still sounding like nothing else I had ever really heard before. This was my favorite album of 2007, and I do hope Will gives us a sequel soon.

Feature Rewind Week: Dive Index, “Mid/Air” — 1 Comment

  1. I bought “Mid Air” after first hearing this episode. One of my favourite indie releases. Natalie Walker’s contribution, “The World is Kind” is staggering. It causes a swell of emotion and desire to repeat it immediately. I don’t get that from many songs. There’s a nice video for it on iTunes, too. Interesting visual concept.
