[Music Review] Gonetcha – Mission

Gonetcha’s “Mission” goes for an acid-soaked psychedelic style. Done with the utmost of care, Gonetcha creates beautiful shimmering worlds, ones that opt for thoughtful reflection. Over the course of the album Gonetcha draws from a wide variety of styles, ranging from funk to industrial to post-punk, all done with the utmost of ease. Vocals go for a hypnotic quality one whose soothing delivery feels strangely inviting. At times the unhinged experimental nature and sly grooves recall the raw energy of the Swell Maps, for like that band, their approach feels timeless. The playfulness of the lyricism alongside the freewheeling nature allows it a defiant, almost gorgeous sort of take.

Setting the tone for what follows is the trippy title track and opener “Dawn Beat”. Tremendous energy pours out of the casually cool unhinged spirit of “Lobster Game”. Dramatic flourishes rise up on the powerful “The Big If” making it one of the highlights of the album. On “Time Zone” Gonetcha rush through in a glorious blur of colors. With “Submarine Wreck” Gonetcha strips things down to the essentials, giving the minimalism a harder edged appeal. A little bit of the blues comes into the fray on the meditative “What You Stole”. Sounding like a John Maus track is the hazy dazed quality of “Unexpected”. Perfectly concluding the album is the fiery “The Messenger”.

On “Dawn Beat” Gonetcha deliver a truly unique experience, with massive hooks and infectious rhythms that linger in the mind.

Nimble guitar work adds to the directness of “All In All”. The smoothness of “It don’t seem right” chooses to go for a spirited, almost giddy kind of energy. Celebratory energy infuses the lush “5 AM”. Hushed whispers rise up on the potent “I wish I knew”.

Fixed Fate – Unplugged

Fixed Fate sculpt songs with true tenderness on the inviting sound of “Unplugged”. With “Unplugged” Fixed Fate appears to go on a mystical journey, one full of hope and determination. Careful arrangements recall Alice in Chain’s EP “Sap” for these are pieces whose haunting melodies and highly articulate thoughtful stories. Stories fixate on the tales of the underdog, those truly trying to overcome. Throughout it all Fixed Fate choose a stripped down, intimate sound that aims straight for the soul. Little flourishes go a long way from the kind intermingling of piano to the at times manic energy of the guitars. Easily the highlight of the sound comes from the fiery furious vocals that rise above, looking towards the sky.

On “Flower” Fixed Fate begin things on a regal tone. From such atmospheric beginnings, the song settles into a naturalistic rhythm. Rather reflective, the song is one of yearning for someone truly special. Delicate to its very core is the surreal scope of “Water” whose glistening guitar work adds to its impressionistic fervor. Gradually the song comes into focus with each reiteration. Showing off their impressive knack for storytelling is the collection highlight, the tale of “Billy”. Layer upon layer of guitar work adds to the spirited, unhinged performance. Tapping into a seemingly sprawling world is the ornate “Frostbite” whose tragic undertones end the collection with true style.

 

Sung with the utmost of heart and passion, Fixed Fate’s “Unplugged” has a timeless classic sound to it.
