Artist: The Weird Weeds
Album: Weird Feelings
Label: Sounds Are Active

The album is a delicate but tastefully punctuated landscape, comprised of songs with narratives winding in and out of each other and open for decoding. From a distance, like a landscape, it is accessible and decipherable as a series of parallel lines running horizontal; dividing sky, earth and water. But upon closer examination, if not approached patiently, the intricacies of dirt and flora/fauna variety can be sense-numbing. It is a difficult record, but because it is brilliant not because it is pretentious. And brilliance requires a shielding of the eyes. Just don’t close them.
