Catalog no.: EMPLP0000014

Item ID: 373518

This is the sophomore full-length LP by San Francisco's elusive pop wizard, DYLAN SHEARER. At the same time it showcases a continuation of his distinctive and infectious melodic sensibilities and an evolution, fully exploring the romance and isolation only hinted at in previous releases. Plaintive and honest, his voice recalls Syd Barrett, Bill Fay, Skip Spence, and others whose words and melodies never seemed in a rush to get anywhere, yet always arrived fully formed in the listener's ear. 'Porchpuddles', Shearer's second full length and first for San Francisco's hodge-podge Empty Cellar records, is rare in its perfect timelessness. Sounds are heard and understood perfectly, yet the combination of these sounds is beyond a simple pop understanding. Songs of longing and songs of seeming indifference are bedded together seamlessly.

LOVEBIRDS - FILLED WITH HATE

Indie-jangle outfit The Lovebirds wears a cloak of many colours. The guitars weave together leads, hooks and riffs arranged like an American cheese platter. The rhythm section takes the cheese and deftly makes a deli sandwich, playing with smarts and panache. Finger-licking ... read more »

 

ENE, FRANK - NO LONGER

Suffused with an atmosphere of slow-simmering tension, this debut-album by the Bay Area-based solo-musician ((the ex-frontman of noise-pop combo Pure Bliss)) traffics in understated grooves reminiscent of latter-era Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, with Frank Ene's rich voice ... read more »

 

COOL GHOULS - COOL GHOULS

An interesting outfit from SF, with the name taken from George Clinton's Funkadelic-era pre-show banter. Musically however they remind of '60s groups s.a. The Troggs, Monks and Sir Douglas Quintet. Three part harmionies, unexpected chord progressions and a garage-rock ... read more »

Fans of haunted troubadours in the vein of Jason Molina, Jackson C. Frank, Townes Van Zandt and various early lo-fi pioneers will find much to enjoy in Joseph's music, but even more striking will be Joseph's refreshingly original command of song. This presentation of 'The ... read more »
