The audio in full has the effect of creating a cinematic experience for listeners, guiding you down these smokey back streets as hints of a story-line and imagery rain down softly around you.
Songwriting stands tall on this one, short lines walk you through a long-form yet rhythmic melody, by means of a surprisingly gentle leading voice – a quality that proves recognisable and unique to the Plastic Barricades sound.
Creep deals partly with what the title promises, though topics vary to keep things interesting, and it delivers consistently with this familiar Nirvana-style set-up and the unmistakable yet ever-unexpected innocence of that leading vocal tone.
A short collection of covers such as this really reinforces the fact that Andrew Farstar is easily the right choice for anyone looking for a singer with a genuine and deep-running passion for performance and music; regardless of genre or era or style.
Andrew Farstar presents a refreshing look at some timeless and heartfelt songs on this project, each delivered with genuine passion and appreciation for the music and the audience who’ll share it.
This entire experience is the sort that can aid the listener with deep meditation or calm – a lyric-free environment, layered with subtle intricacies and effects that take you out into the world and simultaneously further within yourself as they fill the space around you.
I try to stay a bit away from the realism of life, that’s not what music should be, it’s should be about the beauty and magic of it.
Love lifts us up in often unpredictable ways, and this album is a testament to that honor. Undoubtedly one of the most eclectic and enjoyable releases of Imbred’s to date.
So many of these songs are a sheer joy to have fill them room, particularly as the winter nights close in and Christmas is on the horizon.
Peter Senior gets set to kick off your Christmas this year with a fresh yet rightfully seasonal sounding single that’s easy to enjoy.
Alien Skin’s fine balance between entrancing rhythms & fragments of provocative ideas is fascinating & gives the listener a strange sense of privilege; as if this exclusive experience has only been had by the lucky few.
Imbred’s return this month brings perhaps an even harder hitting display of classic grunge than anything from before. The songs offer a string of single word titles & ideas that provoke a certain level of thinking; personal reflection, consideration of mental health, feelings of isolation & the little things we turn to for relief.
