Another Round (An Echo)
From Oh, To Be Weightless In The Sky
Finding their way back to the full band sound after a run of isolation-induced experiments, Seattle's jazz and dreamcore combination Guest Directors release Oh, To Be Weightless In The Sky. Limited to only 100 hand-numbered CDs, the rest of us can enjoy unlimited downloads. This five-track EP includes the critically acclaimed Another Round (An Echo), marking the opening of the entire sound journey. Since 2016's These Beautiful Things, the group have made progress in several directions with thematic and philosophical influences mirrored in their music. On the track Another Round, the full band rework the original home recorded version that featured on the Connected Heavens EP from 2021. Produced by Jack Endino, the legend behind works by Soundgarden, Nirvana, and Mudhoney, (links to eBay) this new release enjoys full support from the quality and experience that comes with perfecting the loud rock band sound.
The music begins with a tonally rich guitar riff that swelters away to its own private groove. As we're drawn in to the magic implied by the progressive melody the band rise up to greet the rhythm with clarity and composure. Drums volley and splash in vibrant displays of accented percussion as guitars roar and duel with harmonising dance manoeuvres. Vocals burst like flowers at dawn with time-lapse photography in cinematic lines of uplifting lyrics. The transparency in the band lets us hear the delicate musicianship that twinkles behind acute distortion and the energetic delivery. A serious fire burns in the heart of this punchy and enlightening track by Guest Directors.
