Brim Liski: "Brim Liski (EP)"

img  Tobias

Side project from Colorado's Shoreline Dream, who are slowly developing a rep as a player within the Sigur Ros sphere of similitude. What this spells is carte blanche for the trio to drown electronics and bright shoegaze guitars in slowness and some degree of gloom, though, in this instance, not to the point of setting the listener to fits of impatient violence against defenseless plastic disks.

There's a navel-gazing Colin Newman angle to much of this, meaning that it could have worked during the more reflective slices of Buffalo Bill's home life in Silence of the Lambs, but the band is aware of this whole new millennium thingamajig being out there, thus we get "All the Things," Daft Punk redrawn for Martians. Since this is an EP, an uncomfortable amount of remixes shows up, knocking the legs out from under spotlight track "Fight" and its drawling pair of shimmer-guitar arpeggios.

But that's a common lesson learned in DIY – Latenight Weeknight is their, and Shoreline Dream's, own label -- and if you're looking, meanwhile, for next-generation super-mope, you'll want this.
