I must confess that notwithstanding a dreadful cover artwork, this is really a good album. These four guys from Portland look like taking long breaths inside a poky post-(post)-rock aquarium, and to escape asphyxia they whisk hard the tail so You can see bright openings. Although writing something like 'bright' about a such so dark album, full of hallucinatory images, - sounds inapt. But, at Temporary Residence, actually there's always been place for the develpments of a genre often superficially abused, and obtusely limited to the formula of “quiet vs strong”. In fact in Doomsdayer's Holyday You can recognize excellent mutations and hybrids with suggestions of a classic psychedelic matrix (Acid Rain), blues, jazz (Immediate Mate), as well as inspiration more rooted into cinematic (Predestination Blues), without losing a strong lyrical sense, and feeding a sensitive tension with patterns that slowly saturate, and grow like waves everlasting storming. Opting for a new graphic designer is the next step. Hopefully so.
not yet, probably nobody cares, or nobody cared enough to tell something. Also: nobody reads komakino.
