Another impressive jazz album from the North Carolina band.
At times, it wonders into brief avant-garde experimentation, but even that is well done, building up tense atmospheres.
The beauty of South’s music lies in its repetition.
Buy this album, if only to see what’s currently happening in cutting-edge Christian music.
While all of the songs are electronic in nature, they avoid falling into the normal trappings of your average dancehall fare.
You’re left with an EP that sounds like nothing more than a bar band covering old ’80s classics.
All 4 songs have that hazy, jangling guitar that you can find in every Velour song, accompanied by quiet organs and gently brushed drums.
This is an album that simply exudes swankiness and style.
He has taken evangelism to a peculiar but effective level that involves love and not persecution.
There’s so much more substance here than anything produced by the average person alone in a basement doing electronically reconstructed jazz.
Sounds like a Fugazi clone with a horn player and a strange sort of intensity that got lost in the translation.
On the whole, I like Fall Sounds more, but Of Color Bright has quite a few bright spots of its own.
The perfect album to see you through those long dark hours as you wait for her to call, but know she never will.
This will appeal to anyone who wants a heavy, powerful album, both musically and lyrically.
The whole disk is nice and airy, never a dissonant note for too long.
Once again, we have another release proving that not all electronic music falls into that amorphous realm called “electronica.”
Wearing sunglasses while sitting behind the wheel is the most appropriate place to listen to this album.
