Music: Regular Music – Sunrise Apocalypse

I had occasion to sit down with Charlie Salas-Humara, one-third of the dreamy outfit known as Regular Music on Tuesday. And during our chat he discussed the interplay between himself and Marius Libman and Eric Mast, how the key to their sound was their willingness to listen to one another, and find the right instances to add something to the improvised compositions they are creating. I can think of no better example of that idea than this track, taken from the group’s forthcoming split cassette release w/ The Cats’ Orchestra on Field Hymns. You can almost see the three, hunkered down over their synthesizers, ears and hearts open as they raise the stakes even higher with each melody, drone, and squiggle. And right towards the end, you get a small taste of the future of this project, which now includes Papi Fimbres and John Rau playing drums. It’s one hit, but like a good drug, it will leave you desperate for your next fix.
