Enemy Planes, ‘Reflector’ – Free MP3 Download
Minneapolis quintet Enemy Planes are a new trick by some elder canines. Members of the group have played with Green Label Sound's Solid Gold, Pictures of Then, Dreamcrusher and countless other notable Midwest acts.
This time around, the guys have tapped what they like to call a "trip-notic musical vein," utilizing layers upon layers that put space between the sounds on the record and create an atmosphere listeners can get lost in.
On 'Reflector,' frontman Casey Call's voice is a mix between Simon & Garfunkel and Anthony Green. As his vocals swing back and forth between walls of psychedelia, the track, a 4:13 crescendo, builds on itself until the last second, when it would seemingly lead into the next song on the album. Alas, you'll have to wait until next year, when Enemy Planes drop their full-length, to hear what comes next. Every great entertainer knows to always leave them wanting more.
"Enemy Planes drifts between melancholy and menace, employing subtle hooks amidst layers of rhythmic patterns, synths, guitar and ghostly mating calls," Call told Diffuser.fm, more or less summing up what you'll hear when you click below and grab 'Reflector.'
