Rowland, Jess Scenes From The Silent Revolution Pax Recordings|
Artsy-fartsy. But mostly farts. Ironic sounds, art noise/fuzz, synth beats, to the hippy (pink floyd, folk, & chanting). The tracks vary widely, so see below. Compare to My Country Of Illusion? Anti-corporate message only makes itself apparent on a couple tracks. 10 features "Let The Eagle Soar" by John Ashcroft. FCC clean.
*1 - (4:17) Alto fem vox. intermittently singing about corporations. Casio. Plodding, 70s, Pink Floydish beat.
**2 - (4:32) Instrumental. Synth rumbles and tinkles, fuzzy hints of d-n-b. Surprisingly good in a disturbing way.
3 - (4:18) Bare piano chords joined by modem glitch. 1/2way, psychedelic singing.
*4 - (5:45) Found sounds, samples. Cheesy strings. Spanish talking? A motor starting? A lame beat enters. 1/2way changes to drum beat over full orchestral sample, and Rowland chanting nonsense?, then low bass rumble and jazzier drum.
5 - (3:30) Electronic plunking. Rhodes chords. Vocal tones. Dissonant & wandering.
*6 - (1:34) Aeroplane radio transmission over rhodes cluster. Fuzz.
*7 - (3:30) Rhodes, jazz drums, and Rowland telling a story about corporations sponsoring the homeless to advertise...then the Z-trons attack. last 50 sec. instr.
*8 - (4:44) Lo-fi hippie folk guitar and singing. Then synth beat (incongruously) enters. Last 40 sec. reprise solo guitar & vox.
**9 - (4:45) Modern/Romantic tumble of piano. Sawed bass and humming in chantlike fashion. Repeated and trippy. Fuzz/noise, faint commercial.
**10 - (5:46) Sample 80's patriotic torch singing. . harsh beat. And then...."LET THE EAGLE SOAR", the great John Ashcroft rips it.
