Song Force Crystal

by Church

A masterful amalgamation of guitar-driven Noise Rock and vocal-heavy Experimental Pop. There's warmth here: tape saturation, sparkling reverb, and analog experimentation.

Album Notes
Dynamic, unpredictable guitars sparkle over resonant Moog bass lines. Thick, layered vocal harmonies wash over precise instrumentation. Bollywood samples mix with tin foil piano, and multitudinous percussion offers uproarious beats.

This much is to be experienced in "Song Force Crystal," the debut long play from Church, a Portland Oregon band ready to catch your attention. Picking up where previous EPs leave off, "Song Force Crystal" pushes Church’s sound further to unearth new tones for the curious listener.

Recorded in a living room to an 8-track tape machine, "Song Force Crystal" reverberates with a warmth and rawness more familiar to 70’s basement productions than to modern day digitalia. The songs revel in dense slabs of tape saturation, perfect for showcasing cavernous four-part harmonies, or trebly amps.

"Song Force Crystal" sounds at once expansive and cohesive, experimental yet familiar. Like a soundtrack to film noir, it conjoins disparate facets into an atonement of sound.
