At this juncture I feel Fresh & Onlys have become one of today's most important and storied indie rock institutions that I may one day perhaps write a book on. From recent continuous hearings of “Presence of Mind” and “Yes Or No” playing overhead on select alt-satellite radio stations at hip retailers, or the previous gnostic offerings from with his full-length Pale Moon and Earth Has Doors EP; Wymond Miles continues along his self-appointed journey with “Night Drives”. Taken from his forthcoming Cut Yourself Free album from Sacred Bones, the secrets between the hallows of earth to the stars reveal themselves in ways like sound specters materializing themselves through Wymond's song.
The synths ghost upward from the earth, as if pushed to the surface by forces lurking within our globe's center core. From the quest for deeper and a more profound revelation of life's meaning, Miles takes his story of clandestine exchanges deep into the night. Here within an impenetrable darkness, the illumination from surrounding planets cast spotlights on the exchanges between 2 persons or perhaps moonlit illumination for a greater conversation between ourselves and the metaphysical unknowns. Through a pained and personal tinged delivery, Wymond brings to recollection recent live solo performances to those favorite moments of vibing out with your heroes in the front row at an intimate Fresh & Onlys gig.
Wymond Miles' new album Cut Yourself Free will be available October 15 from Sacred Bones Records.
