Breakdown: Warbler PL ” My Fornix”

12 Jun


It would seem that we’re on the verge of a wave of backlash against the current crop of lo-fi acts that are scattered around the country playing to crowds that seem to be more, and more jaded towards their work. Instances like the recent incident in Spain with San Diego lo-fi act Wavves seem to be an indication that the general public has grown weary of the trend, which you would think would be a demerit against Warbler PL‘s EP My Fornix, fortunately for mastermind Marshell Walker that is not the case.

To often it seems musicians are trading aesthetic for substance, something that My Fornix feels to have passed over, starting strongly with harrowing “New Moon” Walker manages to grab the attention of the listener with a sound that manages to be uncommonly challenging, yet calming at the same time. The album moves at a subdued pace, settling into crevices of sound not usually explored, in fact the albums stand out track “Arrows of Importance” doesn’t reveal itself as such till several listens in. Much like a McCarthy novel, My Fornix presents its self as something that should be digested multiple times before judgment.

Warbler PL- New Moon

Verdict: Set some time aside to have a drink and a listen.
