BROKEN WATER (Olympia, Hardly Art/ Fan Death Records)
Presented by Unregistered Nurse
From Get Bent;
There are few bands that can accurately evoke the sounds of the Olympia, Washington music scene in the early ’90s. But who’s to blame? There’s a lot to live up to when it comes to that infamous booming post-hardcore scene that was influencing bands like Beat Happening, Unwound, Nirvana, and Sleater-Kinney. However Broken Water, a trio from Olympia, has respectively represented the new wave of emerging artists in the northwestern American music scene. Their second album, Tempest, is drenched in distortion and noise that call to artists like Sonic Youth and My Bloody Valentine.
“When You Said,” begins with somber guitar playing that makes you think, well here’s that shitty sad slow song on the album. However just past that one minute mark is exactly why I love Broken Water so much. Slowly, like a creeping fog, distortion begins to flow over the track with heavy waves of chaotic and strange noise.
The rest of the album continues to keep these elements. Tempest is droned out, a little unkept, all while evoking hauntingly beautiful elements with the harmonizing of all the band members.

Daughn Gibson, 8.1;
“Daughn Gibson’s previous band, the Pennsylvania stoner-metal trio Pearls and Brass, evoked the cigarette-smoke drag of a Harley Davidson ripping through the desert and blasting out classic rock riffs. A strong look, but there’s an element of dress-up to that kind of rock’n’roll posturing. In reality, Gibson was driving trucks, among other things, and while his new solo guise might reflect more honesty or depth, it’s no less rugged or brave.
All Hell finds Gibson digging through crates of country music past and turning up a wealth of noirish, creepy source material to sample. On “In the Beginning”, a dusty piano trapped in its own motion repeats as Gibson croons over the top. It’s a simple blueprint but one from which Gibson teases surprise as the song unfolds— from an electronic whoosh to a single-note female chorus. Those elements lull you further into Gibson’s strange dreamworld but at the same time hold you firmly on the precipice of a rude awakening. (….)
All Hell is a subtly clever record that pits one type of music that strongly evokes one era— here, country music— against another, namely this decade’s sample-heavy culture. Gibson does a lot of questioning within that framework, both seriously and tongue-in-cheek. All of that makes for a rewarding record to think about, and to intellectualize, but All Hell wouldn’t be nearly so fun to listen to if it weren’t for Gibson’s ear for melody. His thick baritone breezes confidently over the songs, lassoing hook after hook, redeeming his burnt-out characters through song. As he knowingly sings at one point: “If I lose you I might/ Write a song about some rain on a highway.”” (FULL REVIEW HERE, IF YOU’RE INTO THAT KIND OF THING)
