Then Is Just Another Kind of Now
The new Now We've Got Members record is a maze of sounds. Every song contains a fragment from another song on the record - a rhythm, a melody, a chord or a lyric. Some of the songs have a shadow song somewhere else on the record. The music is a distinguished blend of various folk musics boiled down to a core of catchy pop. Balkan folk, Ethiopian funk and Greek rebetika from the 30's all meddle in the background of the members' soundscape. DEUS pops in for a cup of tea at Fairport Convention's place and Steve Reich has a shot of pastis with James Brown. This record is all about the moment. It took a long time to make and was recorded on an old tape machine in the band's own loft studio. Their previous record, «Tiny Disasters On/Off» received rave reviews upon it's release. And their label Metronomicon Audio has been praised for it's originality and fearlessness. Yokoland, Metronomicon's award winning in-house design team, made the album cover. «Then is Just Another Kind of Now» is a fantastically diverse album which will surely open peoples' ears to Now We've Got Members' eccentric and esoteric universe of sound.
