Comment: I can remember for an excellent album, Twitches issued by Nick Yulman aka Bone Conductors in 2008 being one notch in the compartment of Outstanding Music at Recent Music Heroes. That's was great. That's was great to listen to this new sort of American Dream in sounds. In fact, Warsaw Machines & Songs used to continue in a similar manner though the accents are slightly different throughout these compositions. You can hear a contemporary music hall and vaudeville music metamorphosis within it. It is especially staggering at Things Are Other Things. It is so. It is so.... . It is so damned beatific and beautiful. Similarly as Sufjan Stevens used to do. Ten for Ten is an abstract clockwork composition yet arousing some warm sensations inside you. It is artsy and affectionate at the same time where a field recording and goofy laughing chord are set up to loop and then they are traded for a gentle machine-like flicker to interplay with hazy guitar chords. True craftsmanship. The same could be said about Island Is Gone. It is a top tier in the contemporary Americana. The point of it is not related to these formal elements only it is also about the relationship between them. At Head Strings Yulman sings in the silent zone we stand alone and spend the afternoon on their own. Usually it might be a quite simple phrase but how it is ached for it makes blatantly sense. Bloody loneliness yet which is highly needed to conjure up great aesthetics. That's organic synergy and because of that it is so appealing either. Killer in a soft way.
