The Block Alone
The Block Alone 7" is another sonic masterpiece from British
Columbia's Readymade. If you're a fan of their brilliant LP, The Dramatic
Balanced, you won't be disappointed by the band's latest offering.
Side A contains the song Block Alone. Endearing Records describes
the band's sound as spacey pop with beats. I can't conceive of a better way
to say this. On this amazing song Arch's vocals play out perfectly over
various electronic beats and guitars to create a truly majestic and ear
pleasing sound. Side B consists of a cover of the Bark Psychosis song All Different Things. The track is a lovely instrumental and is comprised
mostly of spacey pop music as opposed to the beat heavy track on Side A.
Readymade, like My Bloody Valentine and SIANspheric, play the kind of
music that takes you places. Simply close your eyes and allow the music
to build beautiful sonic landscapes in the darkness.
