Daniel Padden - Pause for the Jet [Dekorder - 2008]

Pause for the Jet is the second solo album from Daniel Padden One part of Da-da pop and weird world music collective Volcano The Bear. And through you can hear the odd traces of The bears Sonics here and there through out Pause for the Jet, Padden often conjures up his own distinct magic. And Just like the Bears itís nicely varied really leaving you unsaw were next heíll touch down sonically.

Open up the album we have the weird string picking odd world music meets the blues and da-da indie vibe of Those tongues, with amassed stoned vocalising and harmonies  over the top. There is water at the Bottom of the Ocean is sombre, creepy and spaced out solo piano work thatís underlit by vinyl crackle textures and odd embellishments of avant bow and saw. Narwhal is discordant rhythmic string pickings with banjo end trails, distant Indian rain dance drums and nervy lo-fi vocals. Bustle is playful and boytan brass work meets noir like horn atmosphere and drift with tape element settles. All in all there's 17 tracks and just over 35 minutes of playing time meaning the tracks donít hang around long which makes this a active and shifting ride.

Really if youíre a Volcano The Bear  fan- youíll hands down love this, but I can also see it appealing to those who enjoyed weird stringed sounds and fans of quirky, weird, playful yet cinematic audio fare too.
