Synopsis

Product Description
Recordings made by one half of the space-pop duo Raining on Vivian St, previously known as PHINEAS GAGE, in 1997-98. Committed by the then teenager to a friendÕs basement 16-track ADAT in the early hours of the morning, the songs have a Nick Drake-like internalization & soul. These recordings, originally self-released on cassette have now been reengineered & expanded instrumentally to present them sonically as their scope & sweep deserves. Lyrical, lilting & rhythmic, the songs share some similarity to work by the likes of Spiritualised, Low, & Piano Magic, but seem more like floating in a zone of sleep-deprived questioning & seeking rather than in space. Lambent & glorious, PorterÕs vocal & guitar work shine throughout, but never more so than on the newly recorded ÒSt LouisÓ, on which the swaying melody & skipping guitar lines are tracked by a night chorus of crickets inside a vast cathedral of sound
