Go With Yourself (The Fingertip Saint Sessions Volume II)
A fresh start.
It's evident that the Captain (named after a fIREHOSE song, anoraks) believes in an undefinable quality of life, which is probably why he's tentatively embraced the workable concept of post-rock. After all, what better way to let your dreamy lyrical ideas flow than over desultory musical phrases where the spaces are as important as the orchestral fragments, jazzy acoustics, and glorious synthesised detritus? The brooding call to charms of 'Assembly Of The Unrepresented'and 'Tell Her You Want Her', all sensuous strings and Plush-style fragility, also suggest that Carr has some new records alongside his collection of '60s cosmo folk-rock. A fresh start.
