Recording: Breeze

Artist: Breeze

Song: unknown*

Recorded at The Drake Underground ("What's in the Box" – Night 5), December 30, 2012.

Breeze - unknown

Full review to follow. I sometimes tend to not investigate much about bands until I see them live, so I was a bit surprised to see Josh Korody back up on the stage of the Drake a couple nights after playing with Beliefs. Turns out this dream-pop project has emerged from the ferment surrounding his Candle Recording Studio and it quickly established itself as something I'm keenly interested in.

There was a bit of Real Estate's unforced jangle here, but Breeze performed with a bit more abstract resolve, reaching with determination as the interlacing guitars built up structures akin to crystalline fortresses of solitude — perhaps a bit like what latter-day Deerhunter would come up with if they were timewarped back to cut an album for Creation in the late 80's. Which is to say that it plays off some reflections of the past but isn't beholden to any sort of revivalism. The band has only released a two-song single so far, but I'm marking them down as one to keep an eye on.

* Does anyone know the title to this one? Please leave a comment!
