I just tackled the new age weird-out of the new Transmuteo album and now I’m getting stuck into the cosmic healing synth-drone smoothness of the new Quiet Evenings LP. I feel like I’m on a day out at the spa or something, only with more shouting and papercuts. Quiet Evenings is of course the prolific duo of Grant and Rachel Evans, who also work solo as Crippling and Motion Sickness of Time Travel respectively.
Anyway, this record is dispersing a little of my ever-burning anger with densely layered but never overpowering synth twinkles and shimmers and swells, masterfully put together for a piece which has a syrupy melodic flow to it, always morphing and evolving into strange and graceful shapes and contortions, sometimes with hints of darkness to it but always that sense of astral peace that you only get from synthesizers. I think there’s a little bit of guitar here and there, and the press release backs me up on that, but it’s really just hints and details that are at all recognisable as such, mostly it’s all swirling synthetic peaceful drone’n’drift bliss times. Very nice.
