Brian Parker This was my favorite album of 2020. Minimalist in approach, but maximized in sound - go ahead and crank “Lonely At The Top” on a good system!

Echoes of Suicide, Prince, Link Wray, and the eternal Algebra Suicide. Those deep analog synth bass tones, that cutting guitar sound...really damn good. Catchy as hell.

about

Escape-ism ... the found-sound-dream-drama ... the press-play and run away group ... the pre-recorded potentate ... the grieving widow of rock 'n' roll ... the cosmopolitan caveperson... could you sell a condominium to a cave-couple? Their psyche was informed by stalactites and spelunking; not sofas and straight lines.

It's like that with 'Escape-ism'-- Its a stomp-athon when the drum box is "on," as Escape-ism "re-purposes" leftover noise pollution to create sustainable models for future stomping and smashing, ripping and dripping.

Escape-ism. Writhe to the rhythm box. Pstomp to the psludge. Pounce to the pre-recorded perversity. Gasp to the groan of the tone-poem. Swoon to croon of the goon-tune.

Escape-ism. For fans of: pstomp, psoul, pskronk, psmashed pstuff, psmeared reputations, psullied psensibilities, & other psickening psounds.

"Introduction to .. Escape-ism" is profound, prophetic, perverse, and poetic… It’s introverted glitter, violence against the state, obsessive desire; it stomps on convention, shreds constitutions, clobbers pre-conceived notions of what a record can be.

Yes, Introduction to Escape-ism is a bite into a one-banana bunch.

A drum box, a guitar, a cassette player, and a single slobbering, sinful voice singing out…for a way out. Live, it’s a new paradigm of performance: raw, gestural, idiotic, sublime, revolutionary, poetic, faux naïf, unknowing, a drainage pipe that leads to who knows where.

In a world of make believe ... escape into reality with "Escape-ism"
