News about Evening Fires

Evening Fires interviewed by Mr Atavist

New Evening Fires interview, by Mr Atavist

In the introduction, Mr A writes:

"Evening Fires is all about tradition as much as invention, and Live Spirits carries on their tradition of … Right there: that’s part of the problem any other group would sell their hard-won instruments for. The glorious problem of continually defying categorization while never worrying about being mistaken for someone they aren’t. And Evening Fires are many things, as well as many people. They encompass progressive rock, forward thinking wordless folk, freak-outs, lush drones and some of the most unlikely space rock to come down from any mountain. Kevin Moist says that “we’re so mysterious, even we don’t know who we are or what we’re on about.” If anyone knows without question what they don’t and can explain it, it’s Moist. A constant ember of Evening Fires and Deep Water Acres ‘label boss’, Moist is privy to a unique set of insider’s perspectives for a singular … band. Well, we said we’d get to that …"

Brother Ong - Deep Water Vibration

"Whether the trips are inner or otherworldly, Brother Ong makes them both rooted, exotic and reachable with the choice of tools and a light-handed, and at times fleeting, touch."

and

Evening Fires - Light from on High

"With a catalog that is as diverse, cohesive and enriching as anyone peddling that old-time rural acid rock, Evening Fires have made it very clear who has salvation and who is hawking watered down snake oil."

Recent Deep Water releases reviewed at Ptolemaic Terrascope Online

...Deep Water should be justly proud of these releases, a perfect quartet of albums that are inventive, playful, varied and well worth picking up, great stuff all round.

Dead Sea Apes - Lupus

...blissed out drone that whispers of high magic, sounding like it was recorded in a sacred cave deep underground, just add flickering candlelight and headphones for the full effect...

Evening Fires - Flora and Fauna, and After the End of the World

...soaring and melodic psychedelia that seemingly goes on forever, but never too long, the players listening to each other and reacting accordingly to create some of the most elegant and free-flowing music you will hear...

Brother Ong - Deep Water Creation

...deeply reflective and positive in its energies ... the five tracks creating a soft pool of notes that it is easy to relax in, the rippling notes dancing around your vision, flecked with light...
