Format: Audio CD
Truck records is a haven for glorious new music. Amongst it's signings are some of England's best hopes for a rock future with a spine. Dustball, Fonda 500, Goldrush and the Rock of Travolta are all stupidly talented. But, label-mates aside, Black Nielson is a rock band with a spacious and exciting future.
"Still Life Hear Me" is the debut album from the 'Nielsons, and contains snippets of a delightfully bright railroad of sounds ahead.
The album opens with a displacing attack on the nerves; as if the Stooges were crossed with Mudhoney at a Pavement gig.
Don't be thrown though... emptied of the initial title-inspiring sludgefest, Black Nielson then proceed to unravel a collection of songs that will first heal, then haunt your soul.
"All of this mess, Feline" and "My Friend" showcase a brittle and yearning side to Black Nielson; caring, yet despairingly broken-hearted.
Song 2, the anthemic "Lasoo the Moon", and it's spiritual couterpart, "Brain", are golden. They beam down from your stereo's speakers like rays of country-tastic sunshine, a-la Sparklehorse or the Beach Boys.
Singer Mike Gale has more than a little in common with the lyrical and vocal genius of the Wilson boys (and I mean ALL of them!)in these songs, and across the album as a whole.
The "Still Life Hear Me" rollercoaster of emotions continues to perpetuate, with grossly unpromoted single #2, "Calm Down, It's All A Dream". If Grandaddy were from the south of England, this would have been how they sounded.
Finally, this staggering document of intent comes full circle, with the cresendo of "Our Little Family Of Bears", a gorgeous piece that Mercury Rev would give their lives to have penned.
