Their début EP Coastal Visions was released earlier in the month. A four track release of tracks that minds of a mirage espied through a haze as the duo deliver calmly paced compositions that warm the listener in comforting embrace. The closer is Anesthesia.
Word arrives that The Color Society is actively seeking to add players to the line-up and it will be interesting to hear how things develop.
Emerging from The Netherlands is the indie quartet Call It Off.
Call It Off
On occasion it is good to allow music to bring pillows of summer cloud to drift through the room and Anesthesia, which was released yesterday, is a song to bring out for those moments. Not seeking to challenge the listener with anything more than having a good time.
With light touches, there is always a danger that the material melts into plasticity, Call It Off are able to avoid the pitfall, as there is an ever present twining of instrumentation and percussion to keep the mind engaged. Whilst not something I personally will be reaching for everyday, Anesthesia, nonetheless has plenty ensure it makes it to the ‘reasons to be cheerful’ playlist.
