THE DOOZER

GREAT EXPLORERS

SILTBREEZE


Format: LP
Cata No: SB137
Barcode: 655030113710
Originally released as a CD on the UK label Pickled Egg in 2009, Great Explorers is the second full-length effort from oneman dynamo The Doozer. Siltbreeze was delightfully chuffed to make its acquaintance (by way of Matt Valentine's suggestion) and agreed to release it unto all the world on the muchsought- after vinyl format. Hailing from Cambridge, England, The Doozer bears an almost uncanny vocal resonance to past legend Syd Barrett, as well as a knack for cobbling together occasional found-tape narration with string-strum and hypnotic percussive plonk not unlike The Shadow Ring. The gin doesn't come much pinker than this. Great Explorers is limited to 500 copies and includes a free download.

Tracks:

1. Nothing Like the Hero
2. God Does Not Need Light
3. Hornbill
4. Brother Lazarus
5. Semut 1
6. Up and Down
7. Great Explorers
8. Public Transport
9. Decisive Mind
10. Semut 2

Press:

?The Doozer makes angular bedroom psych-pop from guitar,
keyboards and drum machines. He insists that he ?builds? music,
and it?s an apposite word. Sheet Music has a lovely constructed
precision underlying its surface awkwardness, with a gift for
finding chords or sour melodic twists that initially sound wrong,
but turn out right. His counter-intuitive logic and oblique associations
put him in a lineage connecting The Incredible String
Band, Kevin Ayres and Billy Childish, but most of all another
Cambridge alumnus, Syd Barrett. The Doozer has a voice of
his own, though, and the quavers and quirks of songs like ?Dogwalking?
and ?Burn the Tape? lodge themselves in the brain with
strange persistence.? ?Sam Davies, The Wire
?The Doozer furrows a path somewhere between the progressive
folk styling of Animal Collective and the wide-eyed wonder
of early Badly Drawn Boy. Weirdness levels are ramped up to
eleven?not least due to some initially jarring chord sequences?
and pastoral psychedelia reigns in a not unlovely debut.?
?James Skinner, Plan B
