Where To Swim
Parks And Records (2009)
It’s like an indie-esque lounge record, basically. And I guess if you’re into that sort of almost free-form folk/indie rock with horns and keys interlaced with the guitars, then go for it. Otherwise, I have to say that Carcrashlander‘s album is a little bit forgettable, less an album and more a free-for-all list of tracks that came out of random experimentation. Tracks that unfortunately, all seem to just meld into one long song after a while.
At one point while listening to this I really did forgot what song I was on, and not in the good way. There’s potential, but it’d need a lot of tightening up music and lyric-wise to become an actual “album” as opposed to just a collection of songs, or an ambient background soundtrack. I understand the need for openness in music to allow for creativity, but unfortunately, it didn’t really work out here.
