Broken Spindles - Inside/absent
Those familiar with Saddle Creek should enjoy this heads up. Though not much of a heads up cause this album solely by Joel Petersen of Saddle Creek is over two years old, and this being the second release of Broken Spindles, is a fantastic trip through energetic electronic singer songwriter beliefs and integrity.
Much like the abilities of Thom Yorke and prior to his time Connor Oberst, Petersen manages to slick up a boring sound from the 80's and bring it back to life. Truth is I got this record when it was released, and it was buriedn under many other records I still have yet to pay attention to. But a mix of electronic and emosized lyricism makes for an entertaining experience.
Tracks like Anniversay have an uncanny remorse for traditionalism in rhythm and standard. Featuring electric guitars, and a constant story sit well amongst the rest of the album. Then there's songs like Please Don't Remember This which have more of a Reznor vibe with Robert Smith flakes. Terrific vibe and flow, this track is truly the first you should skip to.
Overall, Broken Spindles is the album you throw in when you have many people over and you just need that tempoed beat in the background. Unless of course you're reading a book, or just chillin for some mind time. Absolutely NOT my genre, but worth a better than average rating, check this business out!
