Title: Pick Up & Run 2007
Label: What The..?
|"Ara "Pick Up & Run 2007" LP captures two very performances of reed instruments, singing, percussion, and a very hazy thick atmosphere what might float over the flower fireworks captured in these two very performances. Ara is the Lexington KY-based duo of Sara OKeefe and Trevor Tremaine of such outfits as Eyes and Arms of Smoke, Hair Police, Burning Star Core, Sick Hour, Death Unit, and Rampart Tapes board of direction. However these adjectives of death sick police, of those maybe there need to be new descriptions in place -- were not quite sure what it is but in this alternate universe it could be the Peace Police, Skywatcher Hour, Life Unit, Colourful Star Party, etc. who are close neighbors. Fleeting "jazz" reference, male/female lowlife love vocals, drugstore basement electroacoustic, just warm and cloudy all over like a yesterday today. Feature the most complicated WHAT THE..? record covers so far, each unique handmade and silkscreened by Paul Coors; the materials you have grown come use to except melted together in rare effort. Paintspray turns into watercolours, perfume, and northern lights -- with a mini-poster and edition of 177 (there is no controls on Mother Nature)."-What the...?|
