Stream Blank Realm’s Go Easy Album

May 14, 2013

Blank Realm's Go Easy didn't get too much play when Siltbreeze released it the first time around, but it's definitely worth a second listen for fans of that elusive halfway point between shambolic noodling and charmingly untethered songwriting. The eight tracks herein are more songs than not-songs, but they always sound like they're emerging out of an unwieldy minefield of pure sound (and, conversely, threatening to return there). This makes particularly well-honed and shapely moments—like the arching guitar line on "Cleaning Up My Mess," or the hints of full-on melodic vocal line on "Growing Inside You" and the title track—feel all the more exquisite. Go Easy is out today via Fire Records.
