Looks like I'm Norman records official Family Time spokesman for this weeks haul of releases. Next up it's Kevin Greenspon with a mini LP entitled 'Common Objects'. I recently reviewed the Cloud Nothing/Kevin Greenspon tape we had on the Caff/Flick label and Greenspon's stuff sounded very different to what I'm hearing here. I primarily recall that stuff being kinda lo-fi indie rock in a similar vein to Cloud Nothing (though not quite as good) but this stuff is in a different place all together, embracing subtle guitar ambiance and new-age sensibilities with excellent results. 'Common Objects' is constructed from found sounds, field recording, harsh noise, orchestral tones and, primarily, guitar based drones. It's an incredibly restrained affair that embraces a songwriting approach to music that is commonly improvised. Greenspon has totally mastered this technique creating a controlled and thoughtful take on blissful ambient drone that occasionally threatens to explode into violent outburst of noise. This one shares a little in common with the likes of Growing (early stuff, no beats), James Farrero (Clear/Discovery era), Dolphins Into The Future and Emeralds mainly due to the new age vibes it gives off. I'm also hearing a bit of Ben frost and The Caretaker in there. Respect to Family Time for putting out a bunch of diverse and decent releases...this being the best i've heard and reviewed this week. Really good stuff.
