ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
New music from Adam Elesh and Brett Smith, 2 of the founding members of the ORIGINAL Los Angeles Drowning Pool.
"Selah" (From the ancient Hebrew. Occurs innumerable times in the Psalms; an interlude or pause in singing voices,
while the instruments perform alone. A pause in order to reflect.)
This 7 song first release is wholly autobiographical in nature; both members of KinderCrowdControl™ drawing life
experience from each other. CDs are numbered, first edition of 1000 copies and beautifully designed by 56design,
with hand letterpress printing by Bruce Licher (of Independent Projects/Nate Starkman & Son fame) out of his
Licher Art & Design shop in Bishop, California.

"Airborn"
This song documents the experience of a young boy transported to school in
another country at the tender age of 7, where he learns to adapt to his foriegn
surroundings by drawing strength from his inner being. Adam Elesh: Recorder,
electric guitar; Brett Smith: 4 and 6 string bass; Strings and Choir: The Mount
Angelus Sympathy Orchestra. Drums and percussion: Samuel Pülle.

"The Return Of Robin Goodfellow"
An ode to earth-bound halcyon days; a time when man lived in greater harmony
with his surroundings. A return to fields of pagan youth.
Adam Elesh: Acoustic guitar; Brett Smith: 4 string bass; Strings and Choir: The
Mount Angelus Sympathy Orchestra; Percussion: Samuel Pülle.

"The Heat Seeker"
A rapid fire Celtic attack (a.k.a. the teeny-meanie-icini); a pick up from
"Airborn" beginnings. A young man pressure-harnessed to the societal machinery
of success with all it's seductive allure. A contemplation on the meaning of "all-that-glitters".
Adam Elesh: Acoustic and electric guitars, Theramin; Brett Smith: 4 string bass,
Chapman Stick; Drums and Percussion: Samuel Pülle.

"Silent Blue"
A contemporary love sonnet to the devastatingly silent skies; in an age of
omnipresent wireless devices, a modern man longs for his lover's cel phone call.
Adam Elesh: Acoustic and electric guitars, keyboards, synths; Brett Smith: 4
string bass; Drums and Percussion: Samuel Pülle.

"Godchord"
The pursuit of the understanding of grace.
Adam Elesh: Electric guitar; Brett Smith: Chapman Stick; Drums and Percussion:
Samuel Pülle; Strings and Arrangements: The Mount Angelus Sympathy Orchestra;
Special thanks to The Hanglowe Highlanders for their drumming on this track.

"Lovebomb"
A movie soundtrack to love with all it's incumbent glories and defeats.
Adam Elesh: Electric and slide guitars; Brett Smith: Massive 4 string bass;
Drums and Percussion: Samuel Pülle.

"Marwar Junction"
The furthest outpost on the borders of the unknown; this is where our journeys
have always begun.
Adam Elesh: Electric guitars, synths; Brett Smith: 4 string bass; Drums and
Percussion: Samuel Pülle. Tabla: "Mr. Mahfouz"; Indian Shehnai Oboe: "Mrs.
Mahfouz".

Amazing follow up to Drowning Pool!
I listened to this quite a few times before I began to get the intricate layered depths of this CD. Very eclectic with tones from a myriad of artist: Peter Gabriel, Alan Parsons, Brian Eno and even a twist from "live and let die".

I highly recommend this as an avant garde "must" in anyones CD collection!

2 members from Southern California's original Drowning Pool retrun in strong for
This is the first official new release in 20 years from the original Drowning Pool out of southern California. Brett Smith and Adam Elesh have returned with new ideas, sounds, and melodies. The album opens up brightly with "Airborn" with Adam's unique guitar style followed by Brett's heavy bass. This album takes off from where their 1989 Aphonia left off but these songs sounds more positive and full of new fresh energy. A lighter side of Drowning Pool is present throughout. All 7 tracks on this album are instrumental.
My favorite track off this album, "Return of Robin Goodfellow", opens with birds chirping and a nice acoustic guitar which reminds me of "Water" from Aphonia. This beautiful piece of music moves along guided by Brett's soft bass and nice strings provided by the --------- This song takes me to a place that I don't want to return from, a place of beauty and calm. "The Heat Seeker" follows gently with nice guitar strumming but quickly launches into a fury of guitar and percussion sounds taking me back to "Din" off of Aphonia. There are samples of dialog throughout that keep me guess as to their source material. At one point in this song the drumms get very funky making me glance at the credits and trying to figure out who is this Samuel Puelle that's credited on drums and percussion. Is he a new member to the band or a hired studio session player. Also, to note is the use of the Theremin to do lead guitar solos!!
"Silent Blue" shows that this new music by Adam and Brett can cross over into today's electronica scene as the rhythms and melodies on this track remind me of the IDM - drum n' bass tracks that are quite favored by electronica fans.
"Godchord" announces itself with blaring trumpet sounds in the beginning taking this album into a different direction. Once again, drummer Samuel Puelle lays down heavy beats as Adam and Brett give this track a classic 70's Bowie sound. Halfway through this song a very nice melody emerges on keyboard and Adam's guitar joins in on the fun. This piece has to be heard to be believed as the melody become an ear worm spiraling and never losing control lifting the listener to a new level of a listening experience.
"Lovebomb" reminds me of the some instrumental avante garde tracks that Drowning Pool did with their 1991 Mumbles - Two Clouds release. This song is probably the darkest track on this album if you can even say there are any dark tracks on it! Definitely a serious sounding tune. It does have a melancholy sound taking me to my teen years when I felt alone and faced with decisions that I had to make for myself.
"Marwar Junction" opens with the sounds of train departing its station and taking a journey into an uncertain future. The guitar and bass almost have a western feel taking me back to the early Drowning Pool tracks like "Petit Malfacteur" and "Trueblood".
One final note to the collectors out there. This release was pressed up in a strictly limited edition pressing of 1,000 numbered copies with packaging done by Los Angeles Independent Project Records legend Bruce Licher. All recyclable materials were used with the exception of the factory pressed silver disc itself.
