Comment: Feast of Violet is the nom de plume of Allen Taylor, the resident from Atlanta, Georgia, USA. This is his first issue which might sound like an ultramodern rock album though it could be considered “rock” in an indirect sense due to some examples coming out from the past. For instance, some shoegaze movement related groups in the beginning of the 90s decided to go beyond the genre-related borders. For instance, Slowdive`s Pygmalion (1995, Creation) was an abstract issue drifting somewhere in between experimental rock and ambient. Seefeel was being a combo whose sounds were channelized into eerie echoes, techno rhythms and abstract noises to kill their predecessors in a softly yet convincing way. Indeed, Botany Charm EP could be considered a child of it. More profoundly, it is replete with spaced-out sounds, multiple layered echoes, noisy yet epic blossoming, concrete and electro-acoustic sounds running out of focus and from one channel to another. Indeed, Taylor`s result is uncompromising because all these sounds are elaborated and spliced masterfully to bring forth the powerful effect ultimately. In a nutshell, the result is mesmerizing.
