Allegories is an ironic name for this project – if there are moral stories within the lyrics, they are difficult to discern through the layers of hum and haze; if the music acts as extended metaphor, it is nebulous at best because the albums sounds different on repeated listens. Nonetheless, the slow build of orchestra, synthesizer, guitar, and drums combined with off-key operatic purring provides an interesting collage, suitable for background track, computer speaker noise, or intensive headphone listening. Fans of Mercury Rev and Piano Magic should find this of interest. Album Surreal Auteur is available for free download on bandcamp for a limited time only! Pick up on it.
