Wiretree: Make up (2011)

El tercer álbum de Wiretree, Make up (2011), representa un cierto cambio sonoro en sus planteamientos clásicos Powerpoperos. No es que cambien su idea de componer o de entender el Pop-Rock, sino que su concepto inicial torna hacia una cierta crudeza guitarrera algo más tradicional, en la línea de unos Jayhawks, Wilco o incluso cercana a Neil Young.
Con todo, Wiretree, en este álbum continúan tozudamente con su idea de desarrollar ese Power-Pop, aún a pesar de que sea un género poco empleado en estos tiempos e incluso denostado desde algunos sectores. Lo que no se puede negar es la competencia musical del combo de Kevin Peroni, alma mater y compositor principal de la banda. Make up es un disco muy tradicional, auténtico, algo así a lo que se programaba en las College Radios a comienzos de los noventa. Un disco eminentemente “de guitarras”, sin ninguna concesión estética a moda musical alguna. Un disco un tanto desfasado en ese aspecto, pero clásico en sí mismo, grabado además según unos patrones de producción conscientemente añejos, utilizando trucos y sonidos evidentemente “de otra época”. Registrado con mimo y ejecutado a la perfección, los cortes de Make up desfilan por el reproductor armoniosamente brincando entre melodías de Pop luminoso (Tiny hearts), de estribillos fácilmente recordables (Tonight), de guitarras crudas (The shore, Broken foot, Dakota) e incluso de reminiscencias claras (The shore es un claro homenaje a Iggy Pop). Un disco, amable, hermoso, que hará reencontrarse a los amantes del Power-Pop con las raíces más claras del género.

Wiretree – Make up (2011)

“Formed as a solo project by singer/songwriter Kevin Peroni, the indie rock band Wiretree comes to us from Austin, TX. After Peroni released his first full-length album, Bouldin, he decided to go out and recruit a few new band members. Kevin is now accompanied by Joshua Kaplan on guitar, Rachel Peroni on bass and drummer Daniel Blanchard. Wiretree’s new LP, Make Up, will be released on Sept. 6.
With sweet-sounding cymbal hits along with Rachel’s smooth bass line, “Make Up” gets the album off on a good foot. The following track, “Broken Foot,” is toned-down a little, but the electric guitars delivered by Joshua and Kevin certainly make this short tune stand out. “Tinyhearts” is more melodic than some of the other songs here as Kevin delivers a nice piano-driven melody in addition to mixing in an acoustic guitar. Describing a relationship, the emotional “Tonight” is one of the better songs.
Things start to get interesting with “The Shore.” The music sounds nearly identical to the Green Day hit “Holiday.” I don’t know if it was intentional or not, but I was really shocked to hear how much they sounded alike throughout all of the two and a half minutes. While singing about just wanting to be with that special person, “MTH” is arguably the best and most diverse track on the disc.
I was fairly impressed with the new album. From start to end it’s like going through a bunch of emotions while some very harmonious music is played. If you’re looking for a soft pop/rock album for easy listening, look no further than this one. In a word: pleasing” (theaquarian.com)
