The Bear and The Sea – The Girl’s Got Angel Wings
November 28th, 2012 by Nueva Forma™

The Bear and The Sea – The Girl’s Got Angel Wings

It’s bleary. The air’s thick as soup and every breath is heavier than the last; more ghostly than gusty, yet still the very stuff of life.

The Bear and the Sea’s debut single with Nueva Forma, The Girl’s Got Angel Wings, is the compressed soundtrack to taking a preternatural drive through Twin Peaks, Washington on any given night in history – you’re destined for trouble and the temper of the atmosphere is almost too right to bear.

It’s all romance and piano keys, overspreading fog and red roses in glass vases. In this moment, you realize that the Earth could stop bearing and sustaining your every need. It’s exhilarating. And then you’re just fumes, a tiny speck of familiar yellow in the distance. Until you hit repeat.

Gouseion – Puisne
November 1st, 2012 by Nueva Forma™

Gouseion – Puisne

There exists a crunchy netherworld of whipping hips and closed eyes; there exists a shuddering whirlpool where hard living begs for a badly behaved soundtrack, where aggressive contraptions nag at the frayed edges of nature.

Puisne, Gouseion’s first release with Nueva Forma, doesn’t bother with the scenery of things. Like a noisy companion who likes things a certain way and operates as a remote soldier with one thing in mind, Gouseion comes from a place of inner quiet – but it’s bloody insane on the outside.

Pirony really sets the whole thing off with a windshield wiper powerhouse jam that’s as consistent and metrical as you like it. It all starts with the jagged chomp of the bass and spreads like an infection into the audio context. Three tracks later, Turing Test loosens the screws a bit and knocks it all down a few notches, but doesn’t let go of a thing.

All in all, there are sweet moments of slow recoil and deep breaths of nasty, pulverized darkness in here. Stagger reminds you that your heart’s still beating and that there is a way out, a way back into the fold where the familiar will always remind you that you’re human. Then it’s all popping circuits and touches of brutal melody from there until EOD (II) fades out into a dark and gentle reprieve.

We think Gouseion is trying to tell us that there’s something lesser yet totally scintillating behind the natural world – innocence be damned. Puisne hails weakness, both as a flaw and an openness, and we all need to hear what that sounds like every now and then – however it is we choose to hear it.
