“the silence and the space” begins with a vocal monologue and leads into an eerie amalgamation of sounds led by keyboard lines, synth chords and tones rising and falling, again over a full ambient background, ultimately breaking into the clear with wide open vocals.
All of the tracks bleed directly into the next throughout the album, making the trip a consistent one through time and space. Though the feeling of weightlessness is maintained, you may touch ground when the beats get heavier for a time on “cause & effect.” Everything comes down by the end of “gabriella the wise” and slowly grows into the final track, “audition for your freedom,” an appropriately formless closer bound only by looped effects and a straight forward drum beat to keep it moving in a forward direction.
The group will be playing the Lost Horizon on Saturday, July 30 along with Bad News, Runaway Hudson, The New Daze, Thrifter and Live in the Lounge. The show is all-ages, $7 and doors open at 7 p.m.
