spelunking: Quirky, by Greyhound Out Of Mainline

There is no telling who — between Ally Winford, Matthew Collings and Chris Tenz — wanted to name their still-fresh sonic thunderstorm “convex.” But it’s pretty certain which one of them wanted to name the project “mancave.”

Winford returns with another offering under his nom d’artiste Greyhound Out Of Mainline. Quirky is both a name and a self-review: “Comes Love” inaugurates the release in a cappella, but sung into a well, the doo-wop fingersnaps and jazzy vocals multiplied, eventually cluttered by echoes, then echoes of echoes, and so on. “Drink Sunlight \\ Fuck Starlight” returns us to more familiar footing, with a distilled, two-chord guitar line, a shy vocal verse and tons (yes, tons) of echo. You’ll see what he means by the end of the track: the effect is downright celestial. “A Life Of Nothing” is a dissonant, slightly creepy, slack-stringed improv-in-the-Kalahari, until someone plugs in a guitar and our shoes all come back into view.

There is your three-track preview. Quirky absolutely resonates, and that’s not a statement about production techniques. At least not just. Download for free at the Bandcamp page.
