Intodown: Brave New World

Ready to get transported back to 1968? Well, then you've come to the right place. Brave New World is the new release from Dallas, Texas act Intodown, the spawn of guitarist, composer, and producer Michael Clark. One spin through through the 11 tracks here and you will instantly hear images of Syd Barrett era Pink Floyd, Miles Davis, Jimi Hendrix, The Jefferson Airplane, Sonic Youth, and Frank Zappa & the Mothers of Invention. The sprawling opener sees Clark's jangly guitar riffs & leads doing battle with the scorching trumpet of David Willingham, while the lengthy guitar jams of "Intodown" might pass as Neil Young after attending a seminar on how to effectively create some serious post-rock. The multi-part "Fire", all 21-minutes of it, allows Cark to really strut his stuff, as he wrenches all sorts of sounds and textures out of his guitar, working his whammy bar overtime while spitting out surf, psychedelic, blues, and hard rock lines. While things slow down to a bluesy crawl with an almost Trower-ish edge on "Nostradamous", the guitarist still gets to display his tasty chops amidst some darker atmosphere, and the closing "The Return" features a myriad of guitar effects that might remind of some of Robert Fripp's soundcape releases. End result is that Brave New World is an enjoyable guitar oriented release that should spark some serious interest amongst axe-fans for this band.
