Both JJ and I have been listening to The Peach Tree (@gamoneterik) for such a long time now and when I got an invitation to an event on FaceBook the other day, I just couldn’t resist downloading the album Psychosis by The Peach Tree and bring you a review, why a review on our official blog? Well we’ve not got much news to bring you so why not bring you a review of an artist we know, we may even bring you some more soon
Released in late 2007, “Psychosis” is a hectic 12-track piece of electronica mayhem, delving into the furthest corners of a troubled mind. Straight from the get-go the album starts to deal with complicated issues, smoothly masked by a fun, pumping sense of energy and entertainment. The opener “Hard Drug Abuse” not only kicks off the album but introduces one of the main themes: drugs and their affect on the human psyche.
There is a lot of stigma about mental illness, most people don’t even know what psychosis is, let alone understand it. The album explores various facets of the disease as experienced by the artist, ranging from moments of complete depression (such as the lyric “Every day I wake up I wish I was dead.” from “Psychosis (Episode Two)”) to spontaneous, warped humour (“Doctor Seuss Or A Sheep?”), and the questioning of reality (“All This Is Real (I Hope)”), yet still maintaining a look at the positive side of things (“Everybody Get Up And Fuckenndance (Cos This Is MDMA)!”).
The brain is an organ like any other part of the body, and can be broken as easily as you can break your arm, most commonly by overindulgence in mind-altering substances. The difference is that no one can see a broken brain, and it’s not as easy to announce “my brain is injured” as “my arm is injured”. This album is an exploration and expression of the mental disease that is psychosis, and is a true journey from start to finish.
Everyone’s own reality is based upon perception, which is the result, amongst other things, of a series of connections in the brain. If those connections are misplaced, crossed or tangled, perception changes and thus the individual reality changes.
The Peach Tree’s attempt to express this is not only deep and meditative but energetic, frenetic, fun and pounding.
That’s direct from the album listing, just to let you know a little about the album
So on to the review:
Right from the very start this album is just one of those that is grasping at your ear buds and saying I’m going to bring you some music that your ears and mind have been waiting for and it just doesn’t let you down, great beats, awesome base and a flow that can only be described as one of pure controllable electronica.
Track one “Hard Drug Abuse” is so techno happy that the vocals on the track are entwined into the very heart of the track and not only have the task of being lyrics, but as a matter of fact they become part of the actually heart of the track.
Then it’s on to track two “Valium And A Fireplace” brilliant title and yet again another brilliant track, great sounds, crystal clear and just wanting to be played more, of which it will be believe me.
“Psy Vampires” just continues the trend of this album and so do the rest of the tracks of the album, it’s such an amazing feet to produce an album which doesn’t have fillers and each track is an enjoyable track to listen to.
I really can’t fault this album and to be honest I think The Peach Tree has done an awe inspiring bit of work on Psychosis, but don’t take my word for it, get a copy of this album and give a few damn good listens
As a lot of you know both JJ and myself have our own Twitter accounts, but we have been pondering on whether we should just use the one, to stop a bit of the confusion.
If we were to use the one account then we would end tweets with ^KW for myself and ^JJ for Jake’s tweets, so we are pondering on if this would be better or not, so we are throwing this out to you the readers and fans of Remergence.
So please let us know, do you think we should just use the one account fro Remergence which is @RemBeatZ or do you think we should keep the two going?
Got an interesting email today from GarageBand:
It’s been over ten years since we started helping discover independent music on the ol’ interwebs. Things have changed a lot since then. Most of those changes have been good and some of them have been bad. Some changes are just bitter-sweet.
It’s with this bitter-sweetness that we are announcing today that Garageband.com will be discontinued as of July 15th, 2010.
The landscape of how music is discovered and delivered has changed drastically over the last decade and we are proud to have been a huge part of that change — first with Garageband.com and then with iLike.com and beyond. Sadly, that landscape will not include Garageband.com anymore.
