3.0 out of 5 stars Strange percussive atmospherics, 26 Oct 2003
This review is from: Silver Apples of the Moon (Audio CD)
Innovative percussion rules on Silver Apples Of The Moon, a brave experiment from a remarkable band. Sugar Daddy opens the album in rhythmic style and sets the mood with its sensual breathy vocals and trippy ambience and is lifted towards the end by some soaring synth lines. Marimba Song bubbles on merrily, enhanced by samples to give it an eerie feel at times, whilst Let Me Sleep is harder edged with a fuller atmospheric sound. Coming Down Glass is particularly quirky and hypnotic with its strange synth patterns and whispered vocals over the skittering beat patterns. If You Miss has a more flowing, symphonic feel and lilting beat as if it were to serve as soundtrack to some art movie. Red River has a harder mix again with a nervous beat and some discordant passages. There are echoes here of various forms of electro and also the late 1970s UK band Flying Lizards. But overall Silver Apples is a very unique musical vision and a brave path to pursue. It is certainly an acquired taste though, and takes some time to appreciate the subtler nuances of the music. Real rating: Three and a half stars.
