artistreader the storm is close-close, it's throughout the ebb n flow of the whole album, it's in my headphones, it's booming, surging, rattle n thrum. bigbigbig joyous noise. pair with jogging; with lights out and lava lamp on; with working at the illustration table. Favorite track: the storm should be in the distance.

orlandolovekill Fuck me, this is outstanding... Won't you step into the mists of the fuzzbeat generator & let your soul vibrate, fast and slow...meant. breaks the beat, noises it, steps & shuffles it...The charge drive, the gospel plateau...Mists, storms, torrents & the rising...This is sound...This is ours...Just step...

nnpoc. Meant seems to add some more post-rock and shoegaze influence to their genre-blender of sounds, creating a much more "out-there" experience, and the tracks definitely feel more energetic than past releases ("cheat code unlocked" and "Cheeto gulag" are great examples of this). Like a wave of uncertainty and optimism washing over you, Meant creates an engrossing experience that they've been known to make. There's a descriptor for you, "uncertain optimism". Favorite track: the storm should be in the distance.

Kactus What truly sets this album apart is the cohesive nature of the storytelling. Meant has expertly crafted a sonic world that immerses listeners, effortlessly transporting them to a place where introspection meets euphoria. Before long, you're enveloped in the artist's vision, feeling every twist and turn, and surrendering yourself to the sheer beauty of it all.

The Detroit/Tulsa connection that shaped The Tulsa Sound is given an update here, with the track Safety Illusion capturing lightning in a bottle that morphs into MBV/Kevin Shields b l i s s before nodding out like SOTL 🌌

You don't want to miss this album! Favorite track: panicked pleasure | e-sim sex.

kristin ides Smooth, synth grooves, sick beats, guitars that shred, whispers of prayers, a clattering of stars, hoarse throats—the notes on this particular meant. release land as gentle on the listener as snowflakes on eyelashes, before crashing with all the nonchalance of the ocean. Best enjoyed with headphones, vibes of choice, a soft warm place and, if we should be so lucky, a person we love. Favorite track: between you and i, there is always more | first steps.

Cheeto gulag 04:28


for: you, always you - in case i don't make it.

i thought of you continually, every day, and was just never quite the same afterwards.

i'm so sorry - it was supposed to have been so much better, and so much more, but there is so precious little that goes according to plan, in this Life.


released October 30, 2023

a meant. release
recorded September, 2023 in Tulsa, Oklahoma

a special thank you to Jasmina Todorović, who allowed me to use her amazing photography for this album cover, as well as the track art for "midnight berries" on this release - without you, this collection would not have materialized the way that it did - i'm so happy that you are still here in this world, and that we have met:

meant. Tulsa, Oklahoma

meant. is a flowstate vapourgaze & IDM layered sound collection of scavenged melancholia in the debris of hopes, dreams, and promises.

but for the joy of that eventual day, we endure.
