ALBUM OF MARCH 2022 – Canadian Pop Romantics BASEMENT REVOLVER With ‘EMBODY’

1 April 2022

Band: BASEMENT REVOLVER
Who: Indie outfit producing noisy and graceful shoegaze-esque
music out of their hometown of Hamilton, Ontario since 2016

New album: EMBODY – the band’s 2nd one.
Order the digital version here .

“Their sophomore LP, Embody, is explicit about these new ideas and new thoughts,
addressing them with a deeper sound and crisper production to adroitly express the
complexity of the world.

It is an album of friendship, of working out identity together and making deeply personal
art. This record, with its complex sonic landscape, sometimes lush and sometimes stark,
is of a piece with their earlier work, but it’s deeper and more self-aware. Embody is the
sound of freedom, especially in the midst of such pain, both locally and globally.”

Turn Up The Volume: The most striking instrument on the album is the angelic voice of songwriter Chrisy Hurn. Just phenomenal. To my avid ears, she may join the female vocal likes of stars such as Angel Olsen, Sharon Van Etten, The Sundays Harriet Wheeler, Belly‘s Tanya Donelly, and Mazzy Star‘s Hope Sandoval.

Yes that good, that special. Check ballad beauties Slow / Blackhole / Storm / Tired and my two favorites Skin and Long Way and you’ll hear why Chrisy’s voice is the band’s shining star. And when they rock out (Be Okay / Dissolve / Tunnel Vision) multi-layered shoegaze guitars take over and create a burning wall-of-sound that blows you away.

Overall this high-quality second LP encourages young people to be confident to be themselves, to be proud of who they are, and proud of how they look. It’s a vulnerable
and heartwarming, a passional and human, a tender and longing piece of work for heart and soul. Album of the month!

Canadian Indie Pop Romantics BASEMENT REVOLVER Enrapture With 2nd Album ‘EMBODY’

New released longplayers

10 March 2022

Band: BASEMENT REVOLVER
Who: Indie outfit crafting both noisy and graceful shoegaze-esque
tracks out of their hometown of Hamilton, Ontario since 2016

“Their sophomore LP, Embody, is explicit about these new ideas and new thoughts,
addressing them with a deeper sound and crisper production to adroitly express the
complexity of the world. It is an album of friendship, of working out identity together and making deeply personal art. Coming out in the middle of pandemic means that embodiment has to take new forms, and this album is one of those ways forward. This record, with its complex sonic landscape, sometimes lush and sometimes stark, is of a piece with their earlier work, but it’s deeper and more self-aware. Embody is the sound of freedom, especially in the midst of such pain, both locally and globally. Trading tracks virtually, missing the camaraderie of weekly rehearsals, and the isolation of that means that the album is full of hopeful waiting: to tour, of course, but also to engage these new understandings together, on the road.”

Bold And Inspiring Pop Pearl – BASEMENT REVOLVER Reveals New Touching Single ‘SKIN’

New sonic impulses

19 August 2021

Band: BASEMENT REVOLVER
Who: Indie outfit crafting both noisy and graceful shoegaze-esque
tracks out of their hometown of Hamilton, Ontario since 2016

New single: SKIN – cut from their upcoming album Embody

Chrisy Hurn (singer/songwriter/guitarist): “This song has helped me to love the parts
of my body that have often been scrutinized in the mirror. Ahead of getting married, I felt terrified about the vulnerability that it would bring. It was the first time I had ever explicitly written about my body, and my struggle with it, creating a slow burn of a track.”

Skin is a brave pop pearl, sonically and lyrically. An inspiring humdinger for the
countless girls/women and boys/men worldwide, struggling with the looks of their
body when it doesn’t correspond with society’s everlasting sexist perception of how
a body should look like, as we all know.

Skin is an instantly affecting slo-mo musing, turning after a distorted guitar intro, into
a vocal and musical beauty, with touching piano play. I’m sure The Sundays‘s Harriet
Wheeler
would love it.

The accompanying video clip is a magnificent revelation…
