Somewhere long ago a pattern and way of sound was unearthed, the glow emitted covered the globe with a half life that sustains itself through countless future decades. A delicately twisted harmonious jangle, where sonic beauty and fun swing side by side. A richness in craftsmanship and creativity in which sweet playfulness is never forgotten. Follow the sound tentacle that travels through time. To a gathering of like minded and the most well spirited tentacles. Only here, the source of what once was, can the future be.
STEREO NO AWARE has no
lines to keep the flow of music within. An infinite source of influences
only holding a ghostly form that resembles the past. These sounds spill
over all genres creating a thousand piece jigsaw puzzle with a tie dyed
smiley face as the picture the pieces create. Eleven tracks in total
and within each, a small part of the world spins with flare and
resonance. The head spring of such well crafted creativity is decades of
sonic heritage gathered by musicians who love music. The melodies are
intricate, combining traditional with the aural fringe. A process that
could easily lead to disjointedness, but "the sound" is a smoothly
polished composition. It is like rolling up the bands, XTC and Giant
Sand, then baking the sonic dough to a perfectly formed hard pretzel.
Twisted beauty from minds with a plethora of experience and skill.
vinyl record titled "the sound" was released earlier this year.
Pressings on black and random colors are currently available from the
labels bandcamp page. The gorgeous colored vinyl is equaled with the
vibrant and thick outer sleeve as well as an inner sleeve holding all of
the lyrics. This Portland, Oregon band toured the west coast in the
later part of the summer.
