Item Description
Blast Off Through the Wicker documents Art Feynman looking for life in the lifeless,
questioning what it means to be living. There is a calm, disciplined pocket to be felt in
everything Feynman does; krautrock slink, staccato bounce, and pentatonic bursts of
Nigerian Highlife fuzz pour on the temporal canvas with unquestionable ease, never
falling in the wrong place. Even more admirable is, that his "canvas" is a four-track tape
recorder, and that Blast Off features no loops or drum machines despite its
aesthetically faithful motorik and afrobeat underpinnings. Nowhere is this fact more
surprising than on album standout "Slow Down" which pulses along infectiously with a
crunchy backbeat, and deftly arpeggiating bass lines that are so locked-in that it would
be hard to fault an unknowing ear for assuming the whole thing is tediously
programmed. There are gentler sides to Blast Off that conjure the spacey tenderness
of Arthur Russell inventively and respectfully, w ithout adopting their muse's palette
wholesale. In this regard Blast Off is an endearing collection of songs that capture the
ear with warm-yet-clear cassette aesthetics and spot-on musicianship, both of which
form an angle that points lovingly to Feynman's deep and varied influences. Make no
mistake-- this one truly is alive.
