Talk More set from KFJC’s Day of Noise this past weekend. We had the 4-5am slot. I drank a lot of coffee, slept for an hour when I got home. I appreciate all of the different directions that Rock & Roll continues to take me.
Parties – Pool Party 7.9
Parties have recorded the strangest Pool Party ever held. Using simple shimmering drones they manage to capture the hope of a pool party. Everything in it simply wafts through. Calm is captured in these two elongated tracks. Drones here manage to linger around melodies. What works best is when these gigantic compositions are allowed to strip, relatively the soft sweet underbelly supporting the giant structures.
On ‘10’ the open, everything shines. The organ shines through. Guitars and organs intermingle to present the sense of watching something beautiful from far away. From the ten minute mark things settle themselves down. Hearing the small sounds does wonders and gives the listener the sense of scope associated with the music. Playful little keys manage to work their way around the greater far larger sounds. Best of all the guitars keep their distance while these small moments are explored in full. Elements of it are curious, discovering tiny new worlds. Around the end of the piece the guitars get their final say drowning out everything with large dollops of feedback.
‘11’ serves as the anxious conclusion. Yes there remains a bit of the hope from the earlier track. There is far more activity in this piece, much larger almost-industrial landscapes being explored. Here the guitars are full on assaulting the senses by the chaotic finale. And by exploring these darker impulses the album manages to feel perfectly balanced. Brought together the two pieces serve as opposing views of the same event: one of calm fun and the other of chaotic worry.

As we press on into the hot, sticky days of summer here in Texas, I’m finding myself fixated on glacial imagery. There’s something mesmerizing about the organic patterns of wear from wind and water decorating the surface of something so monolithic. With this mix, I collected pieces that…
