Quattro (World Drifts In), City Slang Records
Apr 28, 2003
By Chico


Imagine letting yourself slowly fall into the dense pillow that is the humid tense air in let’s say; a bleak desert in Arizona. Now why we’re in full flow of some resplendent and subtle imagination we may as well continue to add some ideas that are eloquent with musical textual analysis. A soft tear rolling down the warm cheek of a loved one and you share something that is somewhat paramount yet without any real understandable meaning. My setting shouldn’t be disconsolate of course, it should be a supreme sense of happiness. Quattro is happiness in a form that is quite hard to determine, other than the fact it imbeds musical genius with a touch of instruments that fit perfectly and are played in such a fitting style.

The lyrical mass that is printed on the sheet of instrumental papyrus seems to have a cupid touch to the imagery I identified. ‘I can’t escape this place…’ is something that Joey Burns and John Convertino have as a rhetoric or symbol for something totally different than my own, but the true beauty is that their masterpiece can fit the individuality of any listener. The single also benefits from the accordion waltz of Praskovia and Pampa, which leaves this upcoming single release burning the laser of compact disc technology into what could be its own form of dreamy consumption.
