44.1 kHz Archive

peruse archival

There's a lot of music out there, folks. Some of it's good; most of it's not. And 'tis my civic duty to filter it for you. Yes, indeed. It's a dirty job, but someone's got to do it.

Well, I've got quite a lot of shit albums taking up space, wasting time and filling my ears with sounds I'd've survived quite nicely without. But you got to dig through the dirt to find any gem and, by God, I think I've found one.

Today I bring you the self-titled debut from Innaway, a band whose smoldering, dreamy rock 'n' roll sounds stand out shiny and new from above the shite. A little psychedelic and jangly, a little Led Zeppelin heavy, Innaway's new album has remained, unlike many others, in my stereo for about two weeks now. I like it. I like it a lot actually. It moves, it travels. It swims and streams and bubbles and breaks. And then, oozing friction and heat, it grinds and wails and cries. And through all its movements, it takes you with it, on its back, like a wild animal through uncharted territory, on a journey through space and time (that's a joke).

It's at once dark and beautiful, precise and lost. "Follow Moon" taunts you from a bleary distance, beckoning you to grab hold of the long, drawn-out riffs and eerie, chanting moans and come, come listener, come. Opening with a bluesy harmonica wail and back-porch stomp, "Threat Hawk" builds into emotionally charged breathy vocals and vibrating, shaking shimmers that you can't help but fall into.

Led off by cricket chirps and funeral-home organ drones, "Rise" is a Sabbath-style dirge, ready to bring you down with it, then transitioning between Pink Floyd-like hopeful premonitions atop delicate, minimal instrumentation. Innaway is, genuinely, a good album. I listened to a lot of crap to find this gem, so don't let me know. Check it out. You'll be glad you did.
