The Galerkin Method

review by Ellis Darwin Windlestraw

Lush and exquisite tunes abound on this CDR release, and they should hopefully get a record deal for their efforts. Quirky, yet pretty arrangements of acoustic guitar, percussion, and bass guitar along with more traditional instruments like hammered dulcimer, accordian, and flute give this a sound that is uniquely engaging. At times sounding like a pack of gypsies, then like a Klezmer group, then like some stuff you’d hear in the beer-drinking tent at Oktoberfest. So nicely done that I forget the fact that I am listening to a group with an accordian! Sorta like His Name Is Alive meets a less rock-n-rollish Firewater, meets a non-goofy Camper Van Beethoven, with a Siouxsie Sioux sound-alike on vocals that continually weaves her lyrical spells in a mesmerizing fashion. Kinda like a non-depressed Swans during “The Burning World” days. If World Serpent Distribution or Soleilmoon were smart they would snap these guys up in a heartbeat so that this musick could get heard by more people. Makes me feel like drinking some red wine just so I can break a glass in a toast like they do in some European countries, of course that is after I am done twirling like a demented dervish to these great sounds. Makes me really want to hear more.
