ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The title of Marys Brother's album is Basic Circuitry, and the cover art features a legend about what the album is about ("basic circuitry from the vacuum tube to electric control circuits, including instructive experiments"). What is it about? It's about using electronics and using the best of the old and the new to create the electronic equivalent of a beat tape. It sounds like one of those long lost electronic albums of the late 70's and early 80's, with occasional hints of distorted beats and "found sound" thrown in for color and atmosphere. You could nod your head and gyrate to it, and perhaps it's best to do so, but this is one of those albums that you want to concentrate on in order for you to take it all in.

Marys Brother is the creation of Peter Bartlein, and one can tell he put a lot of hard work and determination into creating this. With a total of 24 tracks, Basic Circuitry is the ingredient book for what can make a quality album, an electronic music album with depth and composition. "Robot Says What?" is a song that should get a lot of exposure, with its unique textures and voices before it moves into a pulsating groove and synth melody and a bit of that fwack with that metallic high end that might make all b-boys and b-girls twitch with delight. There's a moment in the song that sounds a bit like hearing raindrops underwater, which might sound impossible but not when it comes to audio composition. It then moves into "Doppler Shift", and a shift it is as you hear voices communication backwards in the evening as water and sounds from the Middle East come in, perhaps a war time melody, or maybe... a war crime melody.

The main thing about the album is that it sounds fun, creative fun at that, one that isn't just thrown out there for the hell of it. There's a lot of nuggets and nugetre worth holding on to and peeling to reveal more juicy morsels, and perhaps with a bit of movement on your part you could continue on with the circuitry he has installed. Creative fun at that.
