Album Review

Alec K. Redfearn and The Eyesores – ?The Smother Party? – [North East Indie]

Numa   5/25/2006   A Library, CD

Accordion Gypsy Folk. One of the many projects of the versatile accordionist Alec K. Redfearn, and as with most of his projects, the accordion is the feature of this group. Originating as a solo output in 1997, The Eyesores have evolved into a complex and barely describable sound. Operating out of the fertile ground of Providence, RI, The Eyesores features Glockenspiel, French Horn, Violin, Guitar, Bass, and Drums. Running for dirge-like to slow polkas, this album is full of surprises, especially some of the tracks that feature distorted accordion. Breathing along at the accordion’s pace adds the right feel, but be careful not to hyperventilate. — Numa
