Peeps Into Fairyland : Rain and wires EP

Beavis and Butt-head were so, so wrong. Yes, there are

bands that ‘rock’. And, indeed, there are also bands who ‘suck’.

But

there is also that breed of band who don’t ‘rock’ but most definitely don’t ‘suck’ either. [a]Peeps Into Fairyland[/a] are one such band, and they strike deeper, darker than a million heavy

metal

dullards.

Despite ‘Palace Flophouse’, the lead track of this, their third release, being previously covered by haywire noiseniks Idlewild, the landscape of ‘Rain And Wires’ is not

one

of bombast and rattling, distorted noise. It is rather one of painfully slow, sparse drum beats, of languid, cutting guitars, of brooding vocals equal parts Michael Stipe and 16 Horsepower‘s David Eugene Edwards. [a]Peeps Into Fairyland[/a] are all barren, unforgiving stretches, brutal Steinbeck dustbowls wreaking righteous revenge upon their citizens. We’re entering Deliverance country here, for sure. Was that a banjo I heard?
