The year is approaching drastic steps to an end and that means it’s time to look back. So, as in previous years, here GFRock editors 3 members bid for Danish favorite EP releases in 2014. Earlier in the week we looked at our Top 5 international favorite albums and Top 5 Danish favorite albums.We have chosen the term “favorite”, because just as our 6-star scale represents an attempt to be objective, while we also recognize that we can not avoid some degree of subjectivity, then this list is of course subjectively colored. It places we do not hide the fact and we have because of time constraints not had the chance to listen to much into it together has been notified, or for that matter, listen to “everything” has been published at all. Therefore, the following top 5 an expression of editorial members favorites and not a definitive, objective “year’s best” list.

Coming in at….

#2) Reverend Shine Snake Oil Co. – Anti-Solipsism Part One – Creatures So we came to the first of the two EPs which had to settle for 4 stars, but in retrospect should have been 5. Actually it here a half albums, and has a playing time of half an hour, but with its 5 numbers will nevertheless allowed to fall in EP-category. Reverend Shine Snake Oil Co. Based in Copenhagen, but the musicians come from several different countries. Particularly strong in the image is the front man Claudius Pratt’s vocals and the band’s sweaty fusion of rocksteady, soul and blues works really well. Some of the numbers draws perhaps a little too long, but there are a few gems in between, especially ‘The Truth’ and ‘Hey Now’.

The following is a google translation of an article from Music News online music magazine that explores the trends of Austrian and international music scene. Written by: Carina Marie Stiegler See Original article Here.

 

Who or what is Reverend Shine Snake Oil Co.?

The answer: An energetic Copenhagen quartet with roots in New York, which is somewhere between blues and punk.

Reverend Shine Snake Oil Co. is hardly possible to describe adequately with a few loosely thrown records. Its origins are also shrouded in a dense network of assumptions as the band’s name, the one does not want to open up so easily located. So much is certain: After a long history Claudius Pratt and Justin Moses Gunn pulled together from New York to Copenhagen, where they met Matthias Klein on drums and Martin Olliviierre on upright bass.
Who is the Reverend here?

 

Influences of the “Big Apple”

What was then sets itself according to information from “punk rock, African Drum Rhythms, early American blues and everything in between together “. Characteristic of the sound are also the New York roots, their influences are clearly audible. Here the musical work of the four musicians is so versatile that a description can ever bring something to sweat. Bonds of gospel , spirituals and soul are equally audible as rockabilly , jazz , folk and indie rock.

 

Recordings in prison

After three EPs already released end of 2013 it was decided to include the new plant in Gothenburg / Sweden. The choice fell on the Härlanda prison, his last prisoners released in 1997. This experience brought the band members partially true to their limits, but also ensured that the existing 5 songs from “anti-Solipsism pt.1 Creatures” could be taken in one day. This first part already appeared this year as a limited edition vinyl. Together with the second part called “anti-Solipsism pt.2 – Totems & Familiars”, to appear in spring 2015, this will also be available as a regular album.

 

Of solipsism and Creatures

The five songs of “anti-Solipsism pt.1 Creatures” alone but extend even from half an hour. It is clear: When Reverend Shine Snake Oil Co. is celebrated every second and savored each song, starting with the frenzied “The Candidate”. The driving energy of rhythm and vocals reminiscent of Tom Waits provide a brilliant opening. Little quieter but no less engaging it goes with “The Truth” continues the same times as hugs with the polyphonic singing in the ears, that it no longer wants to disappear so soon from there.
Following this, there is a nice blues-heavy-“Mrs. Brown “, with the Quartett can but the energy level rise as well as continuously during the subsequent” Hey Now “that spreads a special coolness. Is Complete “anti-Solipsism pt.1 Creatures” then of “Home”, which comes atmospherically dense and forms not only by the, again playing an important role, dynamics a worthy conclusion.

 

A Musical Exhibition

Thus, in the four luggage toured this year already by Germany, the Netherlands and Austria, and also placed a stopover in Norway. On stage can play to their strengths particularly Reverend Shine Snake Oil Co.. They celebrate a musical show, which starts polite and elegant, but then more and more intense, sweaty and unrestrained device. When the next tour you should not miss the more energetic foursome so. To shorten the waiting time until then there are some “anti-Solipsism pt.1 Creatures” on vinyl and the mystery about what the quartet will tell his fans exactly with the following sentence on their website:

 

“Social music for people of moderate intelligence and fair health.”

We are caught in, life’s deception, truth’s abstraction & perception, moral convenience & aggression. Fragile, life is a reflection. It’s no secrete, why we do, what we do, when we do…. Lies are simpler than the truth. We are caught in, life’s deception, truth’s abstraction & perception, moral convenience & aggression. Fragile, life is a reflection. It’s no secrete, why we do, what we do, when we do…. Lies are simpler than the truth. We are caught in, life’s deception, truth’s abstraction & perception, Sunspot fade like thoughts in the deep, what do you keep there? Ghost trails like chalk on concert, memories bittersweet yea I would never treat you like that…. I would never treat you like that… You mimic life so shallow in thought no one can drink there. You lead your friends and family to empty place, nothing can live there. In your barren heart, nothing can live there…. You watch as we try to draw water from buckets made of papiermâché. We all drink the glue that they make anyway…. I would never treat you like that…. I would never treat you like that…
