- Blown Realms & Stalled Explosions by Enablers
8/10 Li'l Biz Staff review, 07 July 2011
The Enablers have always been a fantastic band both live and in the studio and new album 'Blown Realms And Stalled Explosions' was never going be an exception to that rule. Much like Baltimore's Lungfish, The Enablers have crafted a unique sound from the interplay of spoken word narratives and tight jazz influenced post-rock jams. The band themselves are dynamic, ultra-tight and insanely consistent in their approach. The music fluctuates between melodic subtlety and outright rhythmical dynamics at the click of a stick and proves that, with the addition of Doug Scharin (June Of 44, HIM, Mice Parade) on drums they are now the last great reminder of post-rock's past glories. Vocalist Pete Simonelli's spoken word poetry sits calmly within the music making casual, intimate observations in his wry husky Chicago drawl. His voice reminds me of many others (Waits, Brian McMahan, Gil Scott Heron, Johnny Cash) but still maintains an instantly identifiable and ultimately appealing delivery. This really takes me back. Great record.
