Solo flight from Chris Bush of Caboladies/Flower Man & Equipment Pointed Ankh. 13 tracks of tunefully coruscating modular synth and familial acoustic guitar. Some of the simmering/unknowable crowd murmur made famous by the Caboladies is present here, though the bulk of Breslin’s meat has the dial set to Song. “Clocks In Mirrors” recalls The United States of America at their most chiming and bucolic (think Cloud Song) while “View of the Interior From The Road” moves in and out of focus gently introducing an element of unease for the walk home. The digital sprinklers of “Untitled” and “Cooling White Projecting” could be on the other side of the street from Richard Youngs’ Garden of Stones. “A Sketch of the Lobby and Staircase” sees Emitt Rhodes up all night on the world’s first wooden computer typing over and over “You don’t always need to sing…”. Rough hewn and handmade, the DIY song-spirit of Gareth Williams and Mary Currie’s Flaming Tunes and the pastoral bubbling of Broadcast in full on british library music mode.
“Looking out into the vanishing and the hills give way to spark,
Breslin cooling white projecting on occasion.”
