Everything But The Gargoyle – “Four Flies On Grey Velvet” – [Pimalia]

Whether you like poetry or not, you’ve got to try this. Haunting instrumentation (including bowed psaltery, mijwiz, samples) set the scene for Kyra Pixy’s entrancing voice reciting the remarkable and macabre poetry of G. James Wyrick. Ferrara Brain Pan (composer) discovered Pixy via Wyrick’s MySpace page, and Everything But the Gargoyle was born. Think dark, atmospheric melodrama. I prefer 2 and 4 because of their steady, sober delivery, but 1 and 3 are great if you like sad, desperate manipulations.

    Thanks for listening and for the review! I am always pleased to receive some sign that we’re getting through to ears and minds with the promos I send out…
