Tideland -- Lull

Tideland certainly caught my ear.

I owe the band an apology for a relatively short review. I'm just at a loss for words as to what to say.

Tideland's fuzz punk is spacy, dreamy, and unearthly. My English teacher once taught me that using three adjectives to describe something means there's another, single adjective out there somewhere that best fits your meaning. Sorry, Ms. B, that's not the case here.

Lull makes for great background listening, but not because it's dispensible. Lull drifts between songs, rather than making clearcut transitions. It's an album that needs to be listened to from start to finish. It's easy to space out while listening to Tideland's first album, but that doesn't mean it won't take you places. It's not the usual fare for this blog, but it caught my ear. I hope you'll enjoy it, too.
