Boomkat Product Review:
Jealousy & Diamond, the previous album from the intercontinental avant-garde trio Autistic Daughters proved to be something that stayed in the mind for a good while. Its quietly disciplined post-rock cinemascope captured a certain sense of introspective grandeur, making intimate, gradual songs sound absolutely epic. Uneasy Flowers pulls off the same sort of trick on a slightly broader scale. In addition to the core trio of Dean Roberts, Werner Dafeldecker (of Polwechsel and The Year Of) and Martin Brandlmayr (best known for his work in Radian), instrumental contributions come from Necks pianist and Room40 recording artist Chris Abrahams and Martin Siewert. Abrahams' piano certainly brings something to the table, especially on pieces like 'The Richest Woman In The World', whose rippling melancholy finds punctuation from power surges of distorted electric guitar. Roberts' singing style is vaguely reminiscent of David Sylvian at certain points, particularly on 'Gin Over Sour Milk', where he channels a similar kind of weariness to something you'd hear on Blemish, and like that album Uneasy Flowers is constantly tinged with darkness and a kind of mournful intensity. Recommended.
