Distance And Clime
This release follows along the previous Centro-Matical efforts: a little Red Red Meat and a little Guided By Voices. Definitely that emotional lo-fi indie rawkus rock. Almost anthems for a disillusioned generation of music lovers that sweep like waves of rain on a desert drive at dusk. Poetic lyrics sung/spoken like truth, harmonized like crooked light, “We’ll shake it off to spite. as they waited outside. You were murderous tonight…” Listening to these songs make me think of the weather, shifting from clouds to sunlight. The rhythms are steady, and the bursts of noise follow the structure of the song, never getting too lost in the ecstatic sounds of dischord. There are even moments of an almost pure beauty floating through, and when those hit you, you’re hooked.
