- Young Silence by Echo Lake
Brain was kind (slack) enough to leave me this Echo Lake 12" to review because he's feeling all disorientated and confused boo hoo. I think he's got something in his eye or his stubbed his toe or something. Anyway, whatever it is he's in no fit state to review a 12" EP (It's got six songs on it and everything....'bloody hell') so I've elevated him of his little duty. If Brain was to review 'Young Silence' he'd probably want it turned up full blast so he can '...really hear it the detail, man' then he'd go on to describe the fantastic emotional journey the music would be taking him on. I on the other hand will review this 12" at a fairly domestic volume and with a relatively level head, if that's alright with you lads? This is Echo Lake's first official release after being lorded by much of the fashionable music press on the back of a slew of sweet demo releases. They play a drone heavy version of Shoe gaze and dream pop that brings to mind the usual suspects; My Bloody Valentine, Cocteau Twins, you know the sorts. Throughout the six tracks the music is consistently drifty and makes no attempt to touch the ground. Every element is treated to massive amounts of reverb and delay so it all sounds constantly influx and strangely unsettling so details are hard to pinpoint. The drums are so distant they are almost non-existent!! Anyway, that's how things are done in Shoe gaze world, you don't need me to explain it. I should mention that they are very good at what they are doing and would have benefited from Brian's input at this point. Instead you get me and I'm afraid this is a little vague for my liking.
