Economical & succinct arrangements of enticing melodic lines, minimal kraut grooves & spatial production.

These spells are not devastating curses, rather they are enchanting incantations! ‘Spells And Daubs’ is an absorbing set of ten colourful-blotches-thrown-onto-canvas by the Düsseldorf outfit. Then a stepping back, contemplating, remixing paint, layering, overlaying, adding textures & contours, scraping free again elsewhere. Their characteristic drive runs throughout. The drums are powerful with a light swing. The bass alternates beyond its functionality & its indicator just of the low frequency, swoops up & takes over the melodic lead. Aptly Alex Paulick moved to the fretless Bass – conjuring the spirit of Mick Karn. “The beat is musicalised, the melody rhythmitised”.
