The Golden Age (Feat. Mikaela Elson) -
A brisk drum fill with brevity kicks the door which floods auric sonic fabrics and things that are nor here nor there yet seeming everywhere.
Dinosaur jr. meets Brian Bats of Sleep Party People's bedroom sad man alien vocals adjacent to the emo shoegaze band Characters. All takes place within a indirectly lit stage with a microphone shadowed but viewable. Within a opaque and dark atmosphere not unlike a sleazy biker bar or comedy club where one dare not upset the crowd one feels dirty but at home.
It has a schizotypical appeal and a extremely surrealism to its cerebrality. Upon response it brings some of L.A. 2013 freak prog outfit Marshburn but with an elevated production, band and dream to sell. Eno-esque and Steve Wilson in development and progressive structure, the band turn into a 90's Dinosaur jr snare hit syncronicity of psy pop flavoring. This candy flip reoccurs back into mellow dramatic drugged out public masterbations and vocals as an instrument.
They peak at the clarity of ranges like Sigur Ros and Tonsite Sigur. After this, Andy takes control of the steering wheel with a Nova Trio Brian type of Selim Menur Weckl imitation that's just delicious. Within the role of a Mars Volta song, songos are avoided and one really plays off the snare displacements and ride patterns. It's rare one mentions Brian Batz and Dave Weckl in same article, yet here we are. What a band. After side sick and the slaughter house five type of serial killer on a loose vibe emits immense horror and maleviolence psychotic intents bleeding from all instruments like a demonic roller coaster that can only end by running directly and full speed at that into a brick wall and so fast that one goes straight through unharmed but fucking terrified and trying to understand. Trying to understand how can something be this imposing and so slick and coyishly avoidant with a secret smile crooked as death and satisfied only by blood. Shed. Blood and sheds. Jesus.
The Golden Age - lyrics-
Walking to the edge again All systems go Full steam ahead If I make it back with a story to tell You’ll find me doing well Where there is darkness there is light Every lion in its room So white If you can see beyond the night I know you’ll be alright All the truths we knew so well Feel them burning up our cells When the day comes I hope you’ll say I made it to the golden age Carried off in a storm I’m far away from safe and warm And as I’m crushed by thew walls At last I see it all The sea is raging angrily Tidal waves consuming me And if I make it back to shore Under moon I’m everborn Under moon I’m everborn All the truths we knew so well Feel them burning up our cells When the day comes I hope you’ll say I made it to the golden age When the day comes I hope you’ll say I made it to the golden age All the truths we knew so well Feel them burning up our cells When the day comes I hope you’ll say I made it to the golden age When the day comes I hope you’ll say I made it to the golden age My enemy is taunting me
