- In the Blink of an Eye / Condo Stress by C. Spencer Yeh
1 review. Write a review for us »
This was originally due to be released AAAAAAGES ago. We finally cancelled all the pre-orders for it only for it to be re-sold to us as 'finally coming out'. Always the way. So was it worth the wait? Well I'm the one charged with being the judge of that and I think I'll say "Yes, yes it was". It's a bit of a surprise actually, I was expecting a total noiseblast featuring his usual screeching violin but instead what I've got is a slice of eighties period David Bowie. Think 'Fashion' or even a little Tin Machine perhaps, at a push, only more heartfelt and with the sheen taken off. It's quite a touching piece of synthpop actually! Sounding simultaneously retro and current, It really reminds me of that amazing Richard Youngs 'Beyond the Valley of Ultrahits' LP in that way now I start to think about it. 'Condo Stress' on the flip is a crooned piano ballad overlaid with touches of weirdness (what on Earth is that instrument doing the soloing there?) Dude can actually write songs! Who knew?
