Cuneiform: Alec K. Redfearn & The Eyesores – The Quiet Room / Dieses Wochenende für 5 !

„The Eyesores are an accordion-driven, gypsy cursed band that specialize in funeral marches and hypno-drone trance music, among other, equally odd things. The Eyesores are bad ass motherfuckers in an entirely new way. Recommended.“ – The Noise

„They offer experimental future folk with elements of real dirt and sweat — and a touch of mania. Highly recommended“ – All Music Guide

 

 

Alec K. Redfearn and The Eyesores have been making uniquely rewarding music for over 15 years. They are one of the great uncategorizable, creative ensembles of our time, crafting a music that is distinctly theirs alone.

The Quiet Room is a little bit different, and also rather special. It was our first release with this extraordinary ensemble out of Providence, RI. Since this first work together, we’ve done two additional titles with them, as well as one that will be out in October!

At this time, The Eyesores were a nine-piece band (accordion/vocals, guitar, French horn, violin, electronics, alto sax, string bass/vocals, drums and percussion).

They combine a gigantic array of influences, such as acid folk, maverick 20th century Americana (Tom Waits, Charles Ives, John Cage, Harry Partch), Eastern European folk music, noise/drone rock, cyclical minimalism (Terry Riley, Philip Glass), cabaret and theater music and more. To my ears, this band is simultaneously drawing from the ‚primitive‘ and ‚avant-garde‘ esthetic, and blending together this huge range of styles into a distinctive, wholly charming sound; at any given moment, you can’t tell if you will be hearing the influences of 1920’s Appalachia, as filtered through a modern rock band, or post math-rock rendered by acoustic instruments.

There are not a lot of vocals, but what vocals there are are nicely sung and feature a wry wit. Always evolving and ever elusive, The Eyesores have consistently left their audiences equally enthralled and confused; the tradition continues here! A quiet stunner!
