The Twilight of an Epoch
This week’s show is the second appearance for the bass player from this band. When Kelvin (episode 5) broke up, most of the members migrated to the west coast. The bass player, my friend Steve, moved to Seattle. There he met a group of like-minded individuals and formed Bronze Fawn, an effects-heavy journey into psychedelia and musical landscapes.
With influences like MONO (check out this Japanese band) and Mogwai, Bronze Fawn wrote epic-length songs mixing electronic elements, cinematic rock, and shoe-gazing riffs to great effect.
While the selections for this show are only culled from their debut, “Lumber”, they also released a second album, entitled “Life Among Giants.”
Treat yourself to a nice half-hour, and close your eyes and journey into a lush sonic landscape of electronic effects mixed with droning guitars and tight fills.
The band called it quits November 18, 2010.
