Overseas (Arbutus)

Tonstartssbandht’s new live LP Overseas is a mammoth achievement: a transfixing showcase of synchronicity between drums and guitar, old songs and new, rehearsed and improvised. The duo---brothers Edwin and Andy White---has been churning out these tunes for ages, releasing tape after tape and touring on the DIY and small fest circuit---their modest set at last year’s OBEY was a weekend highlight. Listening to all 16 tracks can prove either exhausting or meditative---it’s more impressionistic than most records in this vein; mileage may vary---but Overseas’ true success lies in its documentation of the band’s best qualities. Buried underneath layers of delay and sun-baked harmonies is a sense of togetherness that can only come from years of playing with (and listening to) each other. Dreamy.
