The Past Was Faster
The Telegraph Company
The first song kind of reminds me of lo-fi Nick Cave vocals over slightly garage (as in tin can) sounding instrumentations. Innocent angst and wide-eyed heartache. Cynical in its purity. The music moves from... indie-goth (maybe?) to something a bit coarser, in a Captain Beefheart sorta way. Keeps you on your toes. Super Casio freak-out basement rock that breathes. Nick Drake touched at times, when the music dares to be mellow, and just free-flying do it yourself groove tunes at others. Almost a Sixties vibe, but there's something very Nineties in the mix. The indie rock aesthetic prevails over the hippie mellow trip, getting the beats tangled up in long hair.
