Dan Reeves (of Cold Pumas) is releasing his 2nd solo-album “No Time” under his Soft Walls-moniker these days, and it’s up for pre-orders through his own label Faux Discx in the UK.¬† The three tracks available for listening this far brings promise of a versatile lo-fi, psychedelic experience. Starting off with the motorik/krauty Never Come Back Again, bringing it all down with the beautiful jangly ballad of No Time, before clocking out with the droney indie-pop-gem that is Guided Through.¬† I’m excited, really excited..

In addition to running Faux Discx and playing in the band Cold Pumas, Dan Reeves also finds time to record songs all by his lonesome under the moniker ‚ÄėSoft Walls‚Äô. After recording and releasing the eponymous "The Soft Walls" album in 2012, Reeves set to work again, this time with a borrowed 8-track and a vision of composing a suite of thematically interlaced tunes, resulting in his Trouble In Mind debut, "No Time".
‚ÄúNo Time‚ÄĚs ten songs are meditiations on the passing of time itself and the pre-concieved notions (both external and internal) of what you can and should be doing with it. ‚ÄúNo Time‚ÄĚs lyrics touch on a universal fear held by many young people heading north of their Twenties; what am I doing, and will I have enough time to do it? Reeves spent many hours writing and re-writing the album‚Äôs tunes at home and in his rehearsal space in Brighton before hitting ‚Äúrecord‚ÄĚ and it shows. While his debut was constructed ‚Äėas-it-happened‚Äô and recorded directly into his computer, ‚ÄúNo Time‚ÄĚs deliberate songcraft proves just how far he‚Äôs come as a tunesmith, seamlessly aligning his pop smarts with avant-leaning psychedelic drones and a propulsive, rhythmic drive. Dreamy guitar ragas like the opening track ‚ÄúWon‚Äôt Remember My Name‚ÄĚ ebb and flow seamlessly into motorik head-boppers like ‚ÄúNever Come Back Again‚ÄĚ and ‚ÄúAll The Same‚ÄĚ, whilst pop tunes ‚ÄúGuided Through‚ÄĚ and ‚ÄúNo Time‚ÄĚ shimmer enticingly through a foggy haze.
Mixed to perfection with likeminded independents and Hookworms mastermind, MJ in Leeds and mastered by Joe Caithness at Subsequent Mastering, these are songs to get lost in; to discover & re-discover.
