BRIAN AND CHRIS – 3

(Dielectric)

There are a couple of moments in “3″ where I was reminded of Dif Juz, one of the best groups coming out of the 4AD label; nevertheless, Brian Fraser and Chris Palmatier certainly have no fear of bringing out their own artistical dimension which is nicely explicated through a harmonious blend of relaxing post-rock minimal vastnesses and not-too-predictable loose drum patterns. Brian and Chris work quite calmly amidst shifting cadences, pulsating grooves and placid fretwork to reach a pretty detached serenity that never outstays its welcome. Observing their music flow while in their confidential stance, Fraser and Palmatier achieve a beautiful result, with a very positive sense of balance and an eye to aesthetics, too.
