Multi-instrumentalist Bruce Lamont is best known for his work with Yakuza, Corrections House and Brain Tentacles but now is releasing the second solo album “Broken Limbs Excite No Pity” which is the result of his rich music experience and a strong experimental approach.
On “Excite No Pity” an harmonious saxophone floats through electro layers which constantly build suspense and generate enigmatic nuances that will acquire noisy elements while vocals often feel like arcane chants contributing the the general darkened mood and the cinematic nature of the song.
“Maclean” immediately offers more accessible tonalities with a generous round of gentle acoustic passages that craft magical melodies in the midst of solemn atmospheric layers and distant archaic chanting.
With somber spoken words “Goodbye Electric Sunday” dwells in a distorted noisy realm with crackling background sounds and subtle dissonance that clearly hold an experimental edge yet the surf rock style guitars channel hints of catchy positive energy.
“Moonlight And The Sea” holds a profound emotional quality as vocals feel particularly gloomy perfectly matching the sheer melancholy depicted by graceful acoustic guitars while creepy distorted sounds lurk in the background and smooth saxophone melodies add compelling jazzy vibes.
Defying standard music categories on “Broken Limbs Excite No Pity” Bruce Lamont focuses on the creation of an avant-garde nuances and drone/atmospheric ensemble that will ensure a unique listening experience.
