Daniel Romano has a complicated relationship with love. Don’t we all, though? Love is complex, crazy, and contentious. It stems from our most base instincts, spurring us on to the grandest, drippiest of gestures or the ugliest, darkest decisions of our lives. Who among us has not been made a fool in the name of love?
Romano calls his sound “Mosey” music (naming his last album after it), and that album (Modern Pressure) further refines and defines what that sound is: a manipulation of genre and form; intricate layers and wild arrangements; the kinetic energy of inspiration and creativity. The history of popular music is malleable in Romano’s hands, and he crafts songs that are both familiar and challenging. Modern Pressure isn’t meant to be loved at first listen, but once you familiarize yourself with its stylistic shifts, it’s the kind of record that gives you a butterflies-in-the-gut feeling with every repeated listen. If that’s not a sure sign of being in love, then I don’t know what is.
ANCIENT PIG – Featuring members of S’toon groops Radiation Flowers, SRA, Raeburn and The Switching Yard, their noisy Cramps-oid monster meth mash is recommended for fans of The Black Angels, snotty Dylan rants, beer busts etc. Pete Henderson, S’toons one man VOX army, will entertain you.
