30th Art Rock Show: Edit Peptide

Bubblemath brengt zijn eerste album uit in 15 jaar! De Amerikaanse groep uit Minnesota mengt elementen van pop en prog, en buigt die vervolgens om naar experimentele en Math- rock. Jedd Beaudoin van Pop Matters: “Though it may seem odd to refer to such refined music as childlike, a fearlessness overtakes the compositions and playing across this record. It most often mimics a child’s need for magic and wonder. The opening 12-minute epic ‘Routines Maintenance’ walks the tightrope between classic rock and rock music from the far reaches of the future. Lyrics fire into the air with an effortlessness one is tempted to call stream of consciousness, music passages flow as rich and fluidly as a dream and the piece itself demonstrates that Bubblemath has emerged from whatever hardships it experienced fully intact and determined to mine its singular musical path. (…)

Whether Edit Peptide is followed by another 15-year silence or ushers in a more prolific and creatively fertile era from Bubblemath doesn’t matter. Listeners have enough here to keep them peeling away layers for some time to come. We should all join in that task. Dig in if you can search for clues as to how one band could cover this wide a range of sounds and, of equal importance, sustain it for a full album, each unexpected twist offering us something new. What we have, then, is that rarest of musical artifacts, a sophomore release that lives up to its predecessor and may very well supplant it as an enticing and memorable statement.”

Naast Bubblemath met Edit Peptide hebben we deze week: Big Big Train (The Second Brightest Star), Anekdoten (From Within), The Flower Kings (Adam and Eve), Echolyn (As The World) and Gentle Giant (Gentle Giant).
