Boomkat Product Review:
Eyes Like Saucers is the solo project of Jeffrey Knoch, formerly of urDog. Here's an artist who isn't afraid of staring into the abyss: the music on Still Living In The Desert evokes the apocalyptic folk of Current 93 and taps into the kind of outsider songwriting of Jandek or Robert Wyatt - the latter being literally the case on Knoch's version of Wyatt classic 'Sea Song'. The principal instrument on the album (made up of both instrumentals and sombre vocal tracks) is an Indian harmonium, although you'll also hear extensive use of glockenspiel, toy piano and farfisa. The pieces fit together very naturally as a whole, calling on a relatively restricted number of sound sources to great effect. The spiralling repetition on 'Fruhling Der Seele' is an especially effective conglomeration of most of the instruments at Knoch's disposal, while the cavernous melancholy of the title track stems from a solid six minutes of Wurlitzer organ. It's a pretty chilling instrumental and a natural escalation from the bleak harmonium tones that dominate much of the recordings. Recommended.
