Crystal Swells // Sightlines - Split [7"]
Featuring peach-coloured vinyl and original artwork by Dana Kearley.
From Weird Canada and the commiseration of Bryce Warnes:
Eric Axen’s pop rock ’n roll project Sightlines traces a 20/20 vision of shared suffering. “It’s raining and it’s pouring / it’s beautiful and boring,” he sings on “Commiseration”; sympathy can be the devil. On the flipside, Crystal Swells’ twin ursine jammers could serve as opening and closing themes for a cartoon about a hard-drinking Spirit Bear who picks up a surfboard, takes to the waves and shows No Fun City how to party again. Mood-wise, this is a pink vinyl yin-yang. Cold hard tunes for summer’s coming hot days and soft nights.
