Boomkat Product Review:
From its spoonerism title down to its twinkle-toed take on folk inflected rock, Apothecary Cares cannot claim to be the most original of artists. Yet when you're dealing in psych marinated, alt.folk does that really matter? The debut release from Alex Stimmel, 'Trowel & Era' employs a clutch bag of instrumentation (guitars, banjo, Wurlitzer, harp, glockenspiel, kalimba...) which is then given just the right amount of serotonin to accompany the Sunny-D, Wilson melodies. Like 'Mutations'-era Beck had he got a bit more fresh air, Stimmel opens with 'Abandoned Factories' where he somehow gets away with taking on a Brit Rock guitar riff (Seahorses anyone?) and not getting hurt. Elsewhere, 'The Human Abstract' is a wide-eyed college radio double-take of classic Bluegrass melodies, 'All True Love is Happiness' does a Jagger whilst 'In the Icy Beds' is the kind of thing Badly Drawn Boy was trying to pin down on his last album.
