Comment: just breath in and be ready to start off listening to this 7-track issue though there is not much happening at all. It is based on shrill guitar twanging and intoning by a slacker musician called Chris Bading from Cincinnati, Ohio, USA. By mentioning his slacker side I meant only his aesthetical, primitive approach. Otherwise Chris Bading is highly prolific I guess you have no time to enumerate all his issues at Bandcamp, for instance. It could be said the recent whole chimes like being played as one homogeneous piece. However, having gotten many listening times behind I would compare it with some kind of acoustic session by an archetypical grunge man wherein the listener can discern more colours rather than just being a monochromatic flicker. At times his attitude is being more relaxed, at times being starkly desperate and emotionally strident. As we know very well the premise of one sort of art is to be spawn across the spiked way with tears, sweat, and pain. As a result of psychosis and the instability of a state of mind. In a word, it is a quintessential home recording example where the guitar and enterprising will are needed to demolish the prototypical blueprint of masculine man with guitar. Yeah, it reminds me of a sweet span of time in the end of the 00s when such artists started to appear to the limelight. The issue is a part of the discography of Eye Machine Recordings.
