Fragile Creatures - The Meaning Of Life

Fragile Creatures

Unafraid to test new ideas – word arrives that the new album will be digging in to a slightly different tool-box – The Meaning Of Life – being a sample. On each occasion they have featured Fragile Creatures have compacted their sound and taken coil to tauter spring.

Akin to bouncing on a gymnasium trampoline rather than a back garden model – The Meaning Of Life sharply recoils each lull, which previously squatted to heels prior to rebounding, firing the straight legged bounce to higher reach, resultingly, more expansive in display yet tighter in recoil.

The Lottery Winners

I rarely comment on videos, being far more interested in the music, but this is the second video in the past twenty four hours on which I pass reference. Apparently there are plans for a full video at a later date. However, this did make me smile and enjoy the music even more, save the money for another music release, is my advice to The Lottery Winners.

From the forthcoming EP – Young Love will have you dancing around the room in footsteps of joy, if you are not glued to the rubber gloves.

The Meaning Of Life

Somehow it seems opposite to be taking a look at The Meaning Of Life in the same week that Monty Pythons Flying Circus announce a comeback, add to that, just at the beginning of this week I was chatting to a connection in Scotland about Twin Peaks, specifically Laura Palmer to whom the trio make constant reference and combine that with the fact that this is a band who sent me an email back in September 2012, but it has taken me until these conjunctives coalesce to get round to a review and no wonder people believe in witchcraft…. enough of the tangents, how about the band?

The Meaning of Life offer torn back sounds which scamper across the room in a frenzy of verisimilitude in the same vein of a Lynch film. Audible, tangent, yet metaphysical, as each escapade turns into a phantom and so the music floats across the boundaries, each note decipherable yet unreachable.  An EP – Play Fuego – which came out at the time of introduction remains the most recent material and so it was with some pleasure that I learnt that there is a new LP to arrive imminently, to be preceded by some singles.

As regular readers will know, references to Lynchian material means a big thumbs up from me. To my connection who was chatting with me about who killed Laura, was she real, did she die? – not revealed here – and you do need to read the books to get the answers.
