Album Review

Auburn Lull – “Alone I Admire ” – [Darla Records]

mitch   6/24/2006   A Library, CD

Quartet formed in Lansing, MI in 1994; this LP
originally released on Mar. 1999.
Produced by Andrew Prinz (MAHOGANY), who
did the honors for AUBURN LULL’s 7″ for
as well. Full-length debut for Jason Kolb (gtrs),
Sean Heenan (gtrs & vox), Jason Weisinger
(drums) + Eli Wekenman (bass, gtrs), this is a
masterpiece of breaking fog, mist, wet tires on
asphalt, scattered chorales, oiled rainbows –
a canvas-swept hydrofoil of shameless tears ;
all the ‘intrinsic onomatopoeic nature of music?
to be found in the intuitive subconscious. Much
external reverberation processing/sampling &
delay, creating ample beauty and a wordless
longing somewhere between symbolic dream +
universal desolation. More psychotropic than
psychedelic, a contrast medium of encephalogram
that finds us all as fellow bunker soldiers.
