CUSCINO's debut EP "Eternality" gives you the feeling that life is one infinite, layered mystery. CUSCINO, a Los Angeles-based artist/producer and film composer, takes listeners on a six-song journey filled with rhythmic twists and turns, ambient sound, unforgettable melody and a distinct sense of forward motion. Mixed and mastered by three-time Grammy nominee Mark "King" Penn for Trackwriterz Studios (Atlanta), the album is a confluence of comforting beats, memorable voices and expertly warped noise. "My ultimate goal is to take the listener on a journey that's highly visual and open to interpretation, from the layers of music down to the names of the tracks themselves. When focus is given to the music, I want to enable them to go wherever they want to go internally," said Cuscino.
"Turn it up, turn it up," a honey-soaked female vocal counsels at the end of "A Little Black," the opening track on CUSCINO's Eternality. One would be wise to listen. The EP is a perfect soundtrack to all the recesses, dark and light, of your mysteriously infinite psyche. Each song builds on the next, and as the 20-minute musical comes to an end, an acute sense of what it means to be eternal washes over you. The second track, "Unfiltered" takes you down a dimly-lit street upon which you expect to pass a silent, scorpion-jacketed stunt driver. "Only the Beginning" builds on the mystery with pulsating simplicity and a haunting use of layered vocals that nod to another Los Angeles producer, Flying Lotus. As the album rolls on, it becomes clear why Cuscino named his album Eternality. Each track carries a sense of that which will not stop, no matter what dreams may come. With foundational beats that melt into the basic human sense of rhythm, these songs stick with you. The music becomes the score to your daily routine, pushing your mind and soul to places where the borders blur. Dreams and reality cease to be exclusive. The final track, "Walking in the Garden," which hearkens to Purity Ring's quintessential elements, closes with that same honey-soaked vocal offering up a hopeful reminder that "You are always here," and it is easy to feel the endlessness of the self as the song fades out.
