Don Caballero

What Burns Never Returns

Touch and Go

Pittsburgh’s Don Caballero return with a Master’s Thesis of an album, a series of musical equations derivated and integrated. It’s probably easy for the Don to figure all the terms in their heads, but personally, I’m at a loss as to how the keep track of the disparate destinations that all instruments seem to occasionally jet off to. The guitars are an odd combination of chiming-free-form runs and muted plucks, sounding alternately like running water. The cascading note technique flows clearly over the semingly irregular rocks of the drum beat, while a patient bass defines a squiggling shoreline. Don Caballero’s music exists squarely in the hazy realm between extreme chaos and bare order, and most other records sound a bit flat after a session with What Burns Never Returns.
