Bodies Of Water
Please note: MP3s are only kept online for a short time, and if this entry is from more than a couple of weeks ago, the music probably won't be available to download any more.
What waves, what splashing, what gowns that fall and flow, what wine-coloured majesty, what grace. Such intensity in your silent weeping, such blazing open-eyed crying, shouting, upheaval. Bodies Of Water have cultivated (as in, grown from mere seeds) an album of almost unbearable beauty. Ears Will Pop & Eyes Will Blink is a fantasy painting of a landscape lush, wide and foreign, an epic journey, a heroic undertaking, an accomplishment. I've posted them before, but this is their time. They have truly arrived, and I'm so glad I was here when they did.
See how they charge, choirs blazing, through walls and roadblocks and anything set up to slow them down. Over mountain ridges and down the steep side to the valley. Across the valley to the forest, and through the forest like drums. Past the forest and to the field, and through the field and out to sea. "We Are Co-Existors" seems to be about the cost of loving someone, but sung by an army, a mob. As if you could enlist, if you fit the prototype, if you've been hurt, or if you've hurt in turn.
[Ears Will Pop & Eyes Will Blink comes out on July 24th (I'll remind you). buy what you can for now.]

"Our friends appear like dawn" has one of the most beautiful build ups I have ever heard before! I will be singing 'please touch my heart with your tongue' all week.Posted by Annie at June 12, 2007 9:30 PM

nice review of Hostel II. saw the first one (under the influence) that was a bad idea. Such a potentially good premise for a gore movie but such a bad movie.Posted by cap'n guthrie at June 13, 2007 5:26 PM
