(2otx tape - Best Kept Secret 'o3)

permanent link copied to clipboard
Malinconie dream pop psycho 90s con rimandi a Pale Saints, Lush, Ride, Adorable, Catherine Wheel, My Bloody Valentine. E' un sound decisamente inglese sostenuto da ritmiche in stile maDchester, che si intervalla ad incursioni nella psichedelia pura. Un cupo suono cosmico che pare provenire dai solchi di un vecchio album dei Pink Floyd introduce il raga di Central Image (posto al termine del lato A) che con uno scarto elettrico vira in una sorta di personale Interstellar Overdrive e costituisce forse il momento più rilevante della prima parte del nastro. Enviromental Forgery apre il lato B con un dub trasversale alla maniera dei Police, poi ci si imbatte in un paio di asciutti episodi cantautorali e si tenta perfino la strada del funk cosmico e del trip-hop con campionamenti d'arpa. Alla fine si ristabilisce l'ordine e ci si imbatte con maraviglia in una ballad riecheggiante i Mercury Rev in stato di grazia degli esordi. Album davvero non privo fascino, anche se nella politica del gruppo gioverebbe un pò più di coesione d'intenti e un pò meno schizofrenia nello scarto tra i generi. Da seguire in particolar modo per la felice vena psichedelica.

Dream pop psychedelic 9o's melancholy, with reminds of Pale Saints, Lush, Ride, Adorable, Catherine Wheel, My Bloody Valentine. It's a sound brit marked, substeined by rythms in maDchester style, - alternating with pure pshychedelia rush. It's a gloomy cosmic sound that seems coming from tracks of an old Pink Floyd album to open Central Image (put at the end of A side), that with a sudden electric gear drives to a personal Interstellar Overdrive, e it's maybe the most relevant moment of first part of this tape. Enviromental Forgery open B side with a odd dub like early Police, then You find a couple of thin song-writer_ish episodes, and it's unexpected but You hear a sort of try of cosmic funk or trip-hop music with samples of an harp. At the end, order is settled back again, and it results a wonderful ballad calling Mercury Rev in their best grace of early times. An album full of charm, even if the band would need a sort of more cohesion of purposes, and some less schizophrenia jumping on different genres. To pay a particular attention, especially for their psychedelic vein.
