Album Review

Invisible Things – “Home IS The Sun” – [Porter Records]

abacus   10/24/2012   A Library, CD

Psychedelic uber-jam free rock freekout from these two legends of experimental rock history. Mark Shippy (US Maple) and Jim Sykes (Parts & Labor) create the fullest sound I’ve ever heard from a guitar-drums duo. Chaos and beauty coexist symbiotically, feeding off each other in an orgy of complex, overlapping melodies and sheets of sound, punctuated by a barrage of beats in various alignments, simultaneously??structured??and unhinged, and executed with??breathtaking??velocity. An undulating topography of swells and troughs and explosions; experimental sounds into hard driving lullabies into jagged grooves and looping introspection. Vocals occasionally float up just above the surface, but are mostly drowned out in the whirlpool. With all 17 tracks flowing as one piece, the album moves by seamlessly, transporting you through different sections in the blink of an eye. This is Rock & Roll in its most visceral and liberated form.
