Tear Talk/Death Masks: Split Ep (2013)

Edils Recordings es uno de esos pequeños sellos acostumbrados a trabajar de forma casi artesanal y desde luego, de manera absolutamente cercana al altruismo. Es por ello por lo que pienso que merecen la pena aparecer en un blog como el nuestro.
Su última referencia se trata de este álbum compartido entre dos bandas británicas que facturan ambas una especie de Pop-Psicodélico con sutiles diferencias.
Tear Talk graban para otros viejos conocidos de TJB: Bleeding Gold Records  (te debo algún post, Roger, sorry…), y son una banda de Liverpool, de sonoridad cercana a la Psicodelia y con cierto grado de amateurismo que nos recuerdan a bandas como Beat Happening tras haber digerido previamente a The Fall. Ya han aparecido en TJB con un Ep mucho más Jangle como es Port Sunlight.
Death Masks son un combo mucho más asequible. Jangle-Pop positivo, cuasi festivo y desde luego pegajoso. Provienen de Saint Helens, una ciudad también al noroeste de Inglaterra, y suenan algo así como unos Aztec Camera oyendo las cintas de C86 en su furgo.
Este Ep compartido lo puedes encontrar en el Bandcamp de Evil Records, como siempre a precio de cubata, asequible para cualquier bolsillo, por depauperado que éste se encuentre.


3 Exclusive songs each by two of the finest young bands from the UK. TEAR TALK (Bleeding Gold Records) give you three slow, touching yet hypnotic and captivating tracks. Beautifully bleak but overwhelmingly charming TEAR TALK take the lo-fi approach without losing any quality to their songs, If anything it enhances the listening experience. TEAR TALK have released 1 EP and 7″ single through San Diego (USA) Bleeding Gold Records. We recommend you seek them out. 
DEATH MASKS have stepped it up on this release. A sound that brings to mind the wonderful indie of the late 80s/early 90s. Touches of shoegaze that shimmer through scratchy guitar hooks. Lush production captures DEATH MASKS dark brooding pop songs perfectly. Death Masks previous work can be downloaded for FREE from our bandcamp” (Edils Recordings)

Tear Talk: Port Sunlight (2012)

BG014 | Port Sunlight Cover Art

Dentro del interesantísimo catálogo de Bleeding Gold Records, Tear Talk es una de sus últimas referencias. Provienen de Liverpool, y están fuertemente influenciados por gentes tan diversas (como ellos mismos reconocen) como Beat Happening, The Field Mice, o sus paisanos Echo and The Bunnymen. Su sonido es deliciosamente Pop. Sus composiciones son cariñosas caricias aterciopeladas entre sábanas C-86. Podemos decir que hacen de la simplicidad una virtud. Mejor le echas un oído a su sonido en su Bandcamp y seguro que estarás de acuerdo con mis apreciaciones. 

Tear Talk – Port Sunlight (2012)

“Four guys from Liverpool who met in school to form a band….sounds familiar right? Yes Tear Talk is primarily a Liverpool based band. Yes they all know each other from school. But that may be where the similarities end. With the majority of the guys scattered throughout the UK for university it makes it a bit more challenging to come together to make the music happen. But when they do, magic happens. Tear Talk’s passion for music stemmed at an early age when exchanging records, and discovering new music was the bond that brought them together. Their earliest influences being Black Tambourine, The Everly Brothers, The Field Mice and Sweetest Ache. However, it wasn’t until they heard Beat Happening, one of their most significant influences, that they thought to themselves “they can do it, why can’t we.” 
After that it was easy. Well, not necessarily. The guys had moved on to universities and although they kept in contact by exchanging albums online it was when they came home for Summer break that they decided to form a band. Geography notwithstanding, to say you’re in a band is a lot easier than actually being in one, especially when it requires the ability to play instruments. Most of the guys had only just picked up their instruments for the first time that summer and had little to no experience being in a band. To quote Tear Talk; “We feel like there’s this real sense of endearment in the naivety of what we’re trying to do, this kind of fragility that is lost in most modern pop music, which we feel like we give off due to our lack of ability. In short, ability has become the death of modern pop, and gladly it’s something we’re lacking in.” So that being said, Tear Talk, despite their inability to play shows every week-end or not having completely mastered their instruments, is one of the most “awkward, introverted and melancholic” bands (their words) out there today. Here at Bleeding Gold Records….well we just think they’re perfection. Enjoy!” (Bledding Gold Records)
