Memory Lane

I’m scanning every bus stop
Looking to see
If I can spot
the things that I read about
in the books that I read
Living side by side
like I never have before
surrounded by preoccupation
howling and hunting
as I hurry through

-excerpt from Memory Lane on forthcoming Excavacations split with Black Eagle Child on Paramita

Afternoon Future description via label:

Excavacations
Afternoon Future
AA008CS :: Cassette
Duration: 35 minutes

Pop music isn’t what it used to be. Excavacations know this as well as anyone, and you’ll know it too when you find yourself tapping your foot suddenly after emerging from a murky fog of sustained guitars and synthesizers. Chad Parsons & Nicholas Longworth’s increasingly signature stamp onto the musical underground is unmistakably playful, but don’t miss the signposts pointing back in time, and (it hardly bears mentioning) don’t miss the caverns of solemnity from which their lighter sensibilities emerge. These two musicians have been feeding on the morsels that popular rock & roll has left behind, and washing it down with a swig of experimental electronics and a gulp of musique concrete. Their knowledge shows through when suddenly we find ourselves at that point where we want to hit rewind and hear that unforseen verse repeated yet again. When you find yourself frustrated that the last verse was indeed the last verse, take some consolation and rest in the longer stretches of abstraction, and keep in mind that Excavacations just might come back with another verse or two. How soon? Keep listening.
