- Lost In The Glare by Barn Owl
9/10 Phil Staff review, 02 September 2011
Woo! New Barn Owl is always a reason to celebrate. Though it's hardly celebratory music.... it's about as far away from party music as you can get to be honest.... so we've established Barn Owl ain't a party band. They're a band to sit in on your own and listen to while you're having a bleak moment or two. They do make some of the most moving desolate sounding soundscapes though I've ever heard and Lost In the Glare solidifies their rich catalogue (the Elm and Evan Caminiti solo projects are all totally awesome too). The music here was recorded throughout 2011 at varying sessions and it was recorded by Phil Manley. The album starts with a sparse, very typical sounding Barn Owl tune with feedback and Porras/ Caminiti's guitars harmoniously vying for attention over celestial sounding drones. The thing I like about Barn Owl is the fact that it makes me feel like I'm in a scolding hot desert with no one around me and there's no other band who come close to doing a similar thing. By the time you hit track 2 and you're all melty you've got some drums to contend with which are kind of ploddy but they're covered in the fighting guitars... kind of reminds me of Codeine but with a bit more sludge about it... Track 3 and we're back in the desert again... I get bored of doing track by track things so I'm gonna stop there actually. I will say this is the most complete Barn Owl album I've heard, the styles are slightly more varied. What makes it though is the epic guitar playing and the soundscapes they create.... this is (as they say in my house) 'the shit'.
