Remain In Ether

Morphius

Not bad. Three guys, good hooks, interesting lyrics, all the ingredients for a band that may make it to the top. The arrangements are simple enough to catch your ear the first time through, but have enough depth to keep you interested in finding nuances over the next few listens. Greg Preston plays guitar and sings with a clear, engaging voice, helping to bring out the inner existence of songs, like “Country Under Canada” and “Move While the Door is Open.” There’s always a drummer, of course, and Marc Berrong keeps up a steady if yeomanly beat. Tim Baier rounds out the trio with bass and guitar. This music’s not for dancing, but philosophizing in a friendly, bohemian atmosphere. These guys have the coffeehouse intellectual look of a really good college town bar band, and with their pleasantly clever lyrics, they should be a part of your record collection, today. I know they are in mine.
