Eola - Deo Gracias
My friend Edwin White (1/2 of Tonstartssbandht) just released his solo album on his own inprint DOESARE, the project is called EOLA and deo gracias is something thats really special to my ears because it feels like god's music, like hymns from some future dystopian religion. It reminded me of Aki Kaurismaki films: underneath the stillness of tragedy and sadness, belies this innocent comedic humor.
You know that feeling when your inside a church all by yourself and there is some hymns playing and it moves you to the point of tears? Or when your alone walking whistling or just sitting still staring out to the unknown thinking of stuff? Or when you think of something funny and you burst out smiling with a huge dumb grin on your face and no body knows why the hell your giggling?
Ed's music is all of that rolled into one. And it will prove itself over time, cuz I think its timeless music, and its fucking brilliant.
