Emoshuns – SPIRAL STAIRS: Doris & The Daggers (Domino, 2017)

Doris & the Daggers

Hay ciertas emociones al oír el segundo trabajo de Scott Kannberg, aunque nadie se espere encontrarse con demasiados trazos de su época Pavement. Incluso ni siquiera con la de su correligionario Malkmus. Si acaso en cortes como EmoshunsDundee man, Doris and The Daggers
Este segundo disco tiene guiños ochenteros (Dance -Cry wolf-, …) y otras en las que directamente se le va un poco el concepto e incluso introduce en la producción arreglos de metales que, la verdad, no tienen demasiado sentido. Personalmente, prefiero la vertiente más guitarrera. ¿Posición conservadora? Pues sí. Adoro a Pavement, y cualquier cosa que suene a ellos es música celestial para mis oídos.

“Recorded with a host of indie rock stars, including members of Broken Social Scene and the National, Doris & the Daggers is settled in an appealing way. Kannberg eases into a collection of classicist guitar pop that recalls vintage ’80s college rock from New Zealand and Australia, but also bears some resemblance to the sharp, knowing pop of Kelley Stoltz, who functioned as a part-time collaborator on the record. Guitars may be at the center of Doris & the Daggers but Spiral Stairs doesn’t walk a narrow path. He anchors “No Comparison” with disco rhythms, the opener “Dance (Cry Wolf)” feels like a vague tribute to either David Bowie or Echo & the Bunnymen, horns grace “The Unconditional,” and the title track is a phased rush of noise that recallsPavement pulling pranks. Nevertheless, the heart of the album is in those ringing riffs and winding guitar chords, songs that feel like middle-aged updates of “Date with Ikea” and “Passat Dream,” and that’s highly appealing. Kannberg seems comfortable in his skin, happy to reconnect with his roots but never desperately scrambling after the past, and that makes for a quite charming record” (All Music)
