Don't look out of the window

by The Dear Listeners

Haai 04:09


Legendary soundescapistes, Nimwegen's The Dear Listeners, bring their subtle amalgams of sonic fact and fiction to rest chez Smikkelbaard. We get a left and a right. First the social message. Don't Look Out of the Window is a languorous coming together of chirrups and sexily stretched guitar tones, and is possibly the definitive sound collage of/homage to that cosy Sunday evening torpor that NL descends into, wooed by porcine and hyper-suntanned Evil WiZZard presenters on the TV... men replete with thick designer glasses and clothes that somehow manage to look bad both tucked in and left out of the trouser band. Get your frikandels out! Second we find ourselves kidnapped, albeit aurally:Haai is that bit more gnomic, a glutinous trawl through a set of midtones that somehow sounds like your favourite Febo filling given voice. Arte et Labore!
