Shapes Freely is a Northern California duo made up of visual artist and musician Brook Caballero and musician/engineering mastermind Ben Milner. ¬†Quoting the group, “if Shapes Freely’s self-titled debut was a movie, it would be Stanley Kubrick’s 2001 Space Odyssey.” ¬†Well then…I’m intrigued.
At first glance, Shapes Freely sounds like a band¬†wearing¬†mainly folk music inspirations on their sleeves, but there are twists and surprises behind every nook and cranny of the album’s 10 tracks. ¬†Opener Born trips out with a galactic accordion (seriously!), and two minutes in I could swear I was listening to a lost Sunny Day Real Estate demo. ¬†Genres collide into each other like satellites and space debris. ¬†What is this music exactly? ¬†Space folk?!
Whatever it is, and whatever you’re into…you’re going to like something about this¬†album. ¬†Give it a spin below and pick up some hazy vinyl for $20.
