Brian Eaton

A harrowing collection of ten songs, which although a retrospective of the Vietnam war is equally resonant of all the battles being fought around the globe, with a dour measure reflective of the countless lost lives.

Despite the dark subject the music has an alluring attraction in which the listener becomes fully engrossed through its roughly forty nine minutes journey. Bullet Sponge is the fifth track.

The seven track, approximately thirty seven minutes, album (available on bandcamp), fills the room with thundery clouds of motorik beat which they are able to bend away from the angularity of pace with the bleeding electronica to create music that even given its dour shadowing finds the audience laying in supine relaxing comfort gazing with glassy eyes at indistinct shapes on the ceiling as the tracks weave their mysterious journey through the mind.

Soothing Water is the penultimate track.

The ten track album (available on bandcamp) has an underlying whir that sounds like a variomatic gearbox with slipping belts as the leisurely pacing of guitars expand and contract as if half a bar behind the beat, giving the music an alluring temperament of melancholic and vaguely tripped out mood in to which the listener gratefully settles with the soft down of the compositions.

Foamy Lace is the fourth track.

The first track to be revealed of the four on the EP (available on bandcamp), the second song – Adore You – which drifts through the room as though floating on balsa wood has a lightness of texture that belies the intricacy of the underlying composition that melds very busy guitar with harmonised synth, affording the music its soft brush focus, whilst the rumba percussion rhythm finds the listener sashaying through the room to the accompaniment of a smoochy groove of vocal.

Immediately on hitting play the listener undergoes a process of osmosis becoming as one with the soundscape as the music merges with the mind in luxuriant layers of soft velvet which ensnare the amygdala in the gently undulating compositions.

Do You Feel, the third of the nine on the album (available on bandcamp) attests to a release in which the audience will immerse their mind and body with no desire to be separated.
