Recording: Eucalyptus

Artist: Eucalyptus

Song: Water Features Suite [Part 3]*

Recorded at The Music Gallery ("X Avant VIII"), October 17, 2013.

Eucalyptus - Water Features Suite [Part 3]

Full review to follow. With a second 10" album and a tour both on the near-horizon, the Eucalyptus crew gathered at the Music Gallery's celebration of "abstract urban music". Having seen the band in no few dives and docks, it was exciting to hear everything in real live hi-fi, from Ryan Driver's delicate piano to Alex Lukashevsky's genteel wah-wah guitar work. Bookended by a couple older songs, the new material took centre stage here, with this three-part suite, and the wonderful "Windmill Will", whose clockwork heart has gotten even lovelier than when it was first unveiled.

* There was some discussion on stage as to what the various parts of this triptych were named, but at the moment the final answers still seem to be, um, fluid.
