On Land, Pumice lurches and spits through a series of dense, deep dirges built from chord organ, tape & occasionally voice, recorded to two-inch reel-to-reel by Stefan Neville. These blown-out meditations mark the first batch of songs made by Pumice in years, and find Neville alternately pushing the boundaries of his music further out while also peering further inside. Heavy & thick & transformative, Land marks a new chapter in the always-evolving world of Pumice.
The New Zealand multi-instrumentalist’s debut full-length brims with the kind of bleeding-heart intimacy that should define bedroom pop convention, but rarely ever does. Bandcamp Album of the Day Jan 7, 2019
