DW009 Evening Fires
After a year in (slow-motion) preparation, Evening Fires unveil their first full-length CD. Though the group includes members of the Clear Spots and Peacefeather, beyond a shared attitude of musical exploration you'd be hard-pressed to find many sonic connections here. "Side A" features a trippy flowing suite sculpted out of acoustic guitars, percussion, organ, synths, flute, and voice; while "Side B" is built around a lengthy invocation that starts from a mountaintop cathedral launch site to soar out over the forested valleys below. Call it folk-infused Northeastern psychedelia if labels are necessary, though the spirit is more important than any categories. . . . Eight tracks, 42 minutes.
