Yeah, Chuck from You’ll Never Get to Heaven is one of Silent Shout’s stalwart contributors now, so there’s no hope of this brand new EP getting the objective full-on superlative review treatment. Let’s try to maintain a neutral stance despite our OBVIOUS PERENNIAL EXCITEMENT for this ambient pop project.
So, this new EP, containing six songs of unsurprising duration, performs adequately in its goal of eliminating silence. It includes competent covers of Brian Eno and Erik Satie, and is produced and engineered in accordance with generally accepted audio standards. Purchasing this music is possible, but we in no way imply that you should. From Bandcamp.
Here’s a truly special cover of the Brian Eno classic from 1977’s Before and After Science by London’s You’ll Never Get To Heaven, who are releasing a new EP, Adorn, next week. We haven’t heard much from this ambient pop duo (one half of which is a contributor to this blog) since their indisputably brilliant debut album. So we’re all agog at the prospects of a new EP. Agoooooog!
You can pre-order Adorn here.
Quinn Read-Baxter – Don’t Go
I grew up in London, Ontario thinking that it didn’t have much to offer me musically, so I am thrilled when time and time again I am proven wrong. Quinn Read-Baxter plays live with New Zebra Kid, and whet our appetite with a pair of excellent singles earlier in the year. Returning with this three-song EP, mixed by Chuck of fellow excellent London band You’ll Never Get to Heaven, she has solidified her much lauded position in our minds. The vocals perch behind reverb and gothic synths, creating the perfect amount of atmosphere. Dance to this one in the moonlight.
You can find the EP for PWYC on Bandcamp.
