- Seagulls Into Submission by Eyelids
1 review. Write a review for us »
These lads have been round the block a bit already, comprising of Robert Pollard’s backing band during the Boston Spaceships era, and have also worked with Stephen Malkmus, The Decemberists, Elliot Smith, Damien Jurado and Peter Buck and others. Out on their own they make the kind of chiming alternative rock you may imagine from that roll call. They have a tough sound that most closely resembles The Posies but ‘Seagulls Into Submission’ is a nice four chord rolling slice of melody. Hints of Dinosaur Jr, Sebadoh, Velvet Crush and pretty much anyone who has once brandished a flannel shirt.
On the flip ‘I Can’t Be Told’ is a beautifully pieced together slab of Teenage Fanclub type pop but with a lop sided tilt that reminds me of The dB’s or ‘Chronic Town’ era R.E.M. You also get a download featuring a live version of Gun Club’s ‘Sex Beat’ performed with more mates Steve Wynn (Dream Syndicate) and Jerry A (Poison Idea). Promises much this for fans of slightly left field eerie American rock - will look forward to hearing the album.
