T H O M A S ????????
LISTEN ALONG: http://www.myspace.com/isthisthomas
not too long T H O M AS released their most recent ideas on an album, GET IT HERE:
i found their older work is a nice place to warm up...
swing batter batter here we go
ITS NOT SO GRAVE
some very subtle wooo in the left, gentle..
THE MOST BEAUTIFUL CHORDS KISS MY EAR GENTLY BRUSHED BY THE THUMB OF SOMEONE WHO JUST WANTS TO REACH OUT.
is there lyrics
is there love
is there longing
what is this about. he's REACHING up into that PEACH BASKET OF NOTES and pulling out the ripest, most tender peaches for us to taste. this is very VULNERABLE and VERY HONEST
1:45 and some neighbours join in, we he MR PERCUSSIO and the yung CINDY SYNTHWELL. the texture thickens but the message remains. SO FAR SO GOOD. musicians are obsessed with repeating things so when i hear something that just CRUISES STRAIGTH FORM EARTH TO THE MOON i am tickled. a journey...
we have some great development, i didnt realize i had wings before this very moment! GOOSE BUMPBS at 2:26 with those back up vocals.
and a no idea happens, we have some LOVELY HARMONIC MOVEMENT!! i never know where we are going to land this is INCREDIBLY THOUGHTFUL And HEARTFELT.
that this THOMAS is doing to us, we like this idea. we accept our place with this idea. do you? i encourage your open ears to open up your mind to these great sounds.
RATING - PUMPKIN PIE FOR DESERT!!
some fuzzy percussive elements and we are met with that same tender whisper tone of a voice. it glosses through the pussy willows and swims atop swampy lakes. TENDER COTTAGE.
:35 and some new harmonies whisk us along with this breathe of air. WOW THE.... WOW! that a sandwich of people female harmony vocals just stopped by and CHANGED THE SONG COMPLETELY!
1:35 and we drift back and forth between urgency and understanding... WHERE... when we listen to music this vulnerable WE OURSELVES HAVE TO GIVE UP and just let it take us, try VERY HARD to not listen for whats about to happen, only what is currently happening. WOW!
2:48 and that lady friend of ours says HERE I AM, her voice, a new instrument, offers up a new timbral atmosphere ....
and just as this breeze washed in, OUT IT GOES! goodbye swamp cottage.
"yuh,,, WEPOOHH!" haha good one THOMAS.
RATING - BUY NOW!
FAR FROM OVER (SPENCER MIX)
WOW this is a totally different sound I LUV SUPRIRSES
(EDITORS NOTE: haha the typo on that word was too fun to not share it)
some perverse funk riffs bounce around and a vocal melody chases it . snake eats a tail. tiger tail. bigger than a whale......
1:04 and its like sitting on the EDGE OF A HELICOPTER BLADE! WEEEEEEEE are whirling into another atmosphere ROGER THAT!!
1:30 RIFF IT FOOLS!! YEAAA!! What a unique VOICE and i dont just mean HUMAN VOICE but the way this music is being expressed is not something i am used to hearing, VERY FRESH VERY LIVE SHUCK AND JIVE. EXCEPTIONAL WORK TEAM.
RATING - YOURE PROMOTED!!
