TYLER DANIEL BEAN / AU REVOIR: Live at Dead Air: Split: 7”

The Tyler Daniel Bean side of this split features soft, atmospheric indie rock from Vermont. The Au Revoir side is more dynamic and less lyrically driven; it moves from plaintive, moody sections to louder, discordant parts with screamed but nearly inaudible mixed-down vocals. I like the Au Revoir side better (it reminds me a little of the quiet iteration of Pygmy Lush) but the other is nothing to sneeze at if you’re into that sort of singer-songwritery thing. –Lyle (Tor Johnson with Orb Weaver Press, torjohnsonrecords.com)
