Peter Quirk, Derek Fudesco and Marty Lund are good folks, especially when it comes to good folkin' razzmatazz rock music full of heart and soul rainstorm psychedelia, scratching on the wet tin roof of Appalachin whiskey distilleries, calling with the creaking fingers of bewondered black walnut, hard driven by hope and epiphany shaking out in showers of sweetlikesugarcandystardust sparkling with the mysteries of a cosmic forest!!
Or something very similar to that. Look how cute they are!!!
Dan Nigro, Julio Tavarez, Saen Fitzgerald and Cliff Sarcona of As Tall As Lions, deliver a sophisticated space lounge sound and romantic Buckley-esque lyrics lined with the silky scream of beautiful guitars. Their modernity is underpinned with clean, classic cohesion while layering ephemeral keys, piano, trumpet, and passionate stream of consciousness-like trailings. The combination of electronic effects and keys mixed with the intimate texture of the vocals and intelligent, deliciously bruised lyrics, make As Tall As Lions a must-have this summer.
"In Case of Rapture" is a brand new song of passion and the out of reach desires of life as an adrenaline junkie (my interpretation) while "Circles", which is another favorite of mine- very soft and dreamy, like watching smoke drift and curl, in slow motion in the sun.
