Because Time Is Too Short

by Ignatz

  • Limited edition cassette C40

    The tape achieves lift off with the upbeat, 'Some People Keep Their Change'. This track is comprised of skittish strings and Bram's unmistakable croon. The next track, 'Stop Shining' is entirely different, as a welter of strings bathed in effects and random transmissions circle overhead. '(Oh) I know you', the third track, is my favorite of the cassette. For those that enjoyed the Virgil Caine re-issue on Time-Lag, this one is for you. It's full of deep-fried, ramshackle blues that mix perfectly with Bram's voice. The mood changes with the next track, 'Inside Sight', an introspective zoner of scraped strings and quivering vocals. The last track on side A, 'The Evening Light', is notable for its delicate strings and ethereal aesthetic - reminiscent of the excellent In Search of Light by Danny Paul Grody. One instantly settles, as the flip starts with the playful, 'I Miss My Dog'. However, the mood changes with, 'Pale Moon' as somber, warped strings float through the thin night air and are then pervaded by a beam of concentrated energy. Another favorite is the fourth track, 'Everyday Vodka'. Bram's vocals have a different quality in this track, as whimsical strings are blurred with effects. Later, a beautiful effect is achieved with cascading, woozy strings.
