Goodbye Enemy Airship The Landlord Is Dead
The only vocal sound that can be heard upfront is an exasperated cough at the end of another understated, yet turbulent, instrumental..
Which is to say 'Goodbye Enemy Airship...' has been stamped with a uniqueness that either comes from intuition or from people who have 'unlearned' whatever their formative influences were. With horns and subtle electronics - to provide a counterpoint to minor-key guitar drones, percussive rumbles and carefully picked notes - DMST evoke a sense of loss, sadness and loneliness that goes beyond language.
Sometimes it gets too much; like the mournful trumpets on 'The Landlord Is Dead' and the seemingly never-ending coda on the closer, 'Goodbye Enemy Airship'. These are moments when you wonder why relatively affluent kids should seem so unhappy. But then again, perhaps money buys the luxury to wallow in despair. A welcome step sideways, nonetheless.
