Soft Abuse


SAB029 | CS, CD, DL



As the title self-effacingly implies, Quo proffers a triumphant, primo slice of past Pumiceisms: uncertain progressions, anomalous structure, inimitable guitar buzz, sublime melancholy, and distorted vocals (crooned, spoken & moaned). Quo once more finds Pumice cruising the convergence of pop, folk and noise strains with bona fide inner mystique; Neville’s palette has shifted to include traces of useless hardcore, doo wop, and modern loner/lunar blues.
