Bevelers (untitled EP)

***1/2 stars

Bevelers are pretty dang cool. When I talked to Lee, I was trying to get a pinpoint on where they were coming from, and she mentioned so many ghosts from Long Ago that I’d never heard of. While it isn’t that hard to out-underground someone who lives above ground in the scene, I was still fascinated and curious. Ivanitsky and Aulson are two willow wisps that might evaporate into dying light if we sneeze, so we sat cross-legged as Bevelers transcended heartache into sleepy kisses in the morning.

~The Good~

You’d think that these two can only be the softest descent out of stormy clouds into vaporous rolling plains. This music harkens back to frightening yet wondrous times, when love couldn’t die and when life was fleeting. The arrangements are minimal, but arresting none the less, and Lee and Adria seemed meant to sing together. They’re also really sweet kids, and they’re arguably cuter than Year of the Rabbit, which would be nearly impossible to pull off.

~The Bad~

It just feels like there’s so much room for these two to grow, that we haven’t really heard what they can do yet. It’s great music, but it does kinda feel like a sophomore effort. All the more reason to keep an eye on ‘em, though.

~non sequitur~

Go and see them live. They may be younger than you, but you yourself might end up feeling like a kid in medieval times, listening to a storyteller as she weaves her spell.

Hot Track: “Fine Line” … can I say that Bevelers are beautifully spooky? Ok, beautifully spooky. Only this band can take part of what might be a Beyonce lyric and make it into something that doesn’t sound remotely silly. - Galen Pepys
