Shuteye Unison - Shuteye Unison
A San Francisco, CA bred formation designed from hiatus band members of Rum Diary, Built For The Sea, Mijuanito and The Action Design is a pure example of what rhythm and melody should mean to music today. Though this release is over a year old and a mere six songs, ordinarily this is where the real nuggets are found. Nonchalant and without pressure hiding away from the mainstream.
This recording is collaborating sounds of experimental post punk and that warm fuzzy The Cure development of echoed vocals. "Through Dunes" once through the slow intro breathes a consistent guitar stroking and drum pattern that mellows and moves. "Latin Metrics" has a more upbeat but dark drive, and without long delay, the lead vocals are indie and poignantly background symptoms of the instrumentation. One of the best tracks here without a doubt is "Fields Landing". A slowly cut song with carvings that will leave your brain in a constant sway of the rhythm for the rest of the day.
I'm not sure where these guys went or planned after finishing up this recording, but this review is a simple request for more.
