Volumina is essentially Benjamin Z. A native of Mexico, this dude definitely knows how to incorporate whimsical sounds, instrumental reveries and sweet vocals into his music. The album is an eclectic mix of instruments and sounds that makes you feel as if you were living in an cool, romantic 8-bit, children’s program.

This is Our Home, Please Come In! is equipped with 8 beautiful tracks that can make you reflect; wish you were a musician and even do the robot dance. This experimental indie pop album is a fun and spirited effort from this artist. Essentially, you get that warm fuzzy feeling when listening to album, just like someone important is giving you that big long hug once you’ve gotten home from a long hard day at work.

This album is available for free download on Canadian netlabel, Peppermill Records. Check it out and give yourself a cozy warm hug just by listening to it.

This is Our Home, Please Come In! is an eclectic compilation that features experimental noises that sound as if they were made from various instruments found at home. This quirky record opens up with My Best Friend. It features a nice acoustic pop intro that’s followed by unison humming and poppy vocals. A fun track that you can imagine being played on Blues Clues.

Love, on the other hand, is a poetic ballad that showcases robotic samples behind very soft, quiet vocals. Definitely the perfect soundtrack if C-3PO met a girl 3PO and fell, well, in love. Meanwhile, Old Family Photo Album sees the artist taking a great trip down memory lane. With twinkling sounds and drummer boy beats, this is a nice cut that takes you back to the good old days. Finally, The Rock & Roll Space Band is a trippy and dancy instrumental cut that surrounds you with funky synth beats.

Part time musician, student, dressmaker and barista, Volumina, certainly gets his way around. With this awesome set of tracks, he clearly showcases creativity and ingenuity in creating a psychedelic set of electronica infused tracks.

Almost all the titles reflect what the songs are actually about. Basically, the album is like a nice welcome home, and surely it’s hard to imagine not coming back for more of this pleasantly bizarre sound.
