apparently they’ll ease my painfully literal interpretations or something. Here’s a really very lovely slab of gentle sunday afternoon listening. Caudal is a ‘trance punk’ trio featuring the ever busy Aidan ‘Nadja’ Baker. This is a gorgeous kraut/space/drone rock record in gentle mood. Three long tracks of his delicate and accomplished guitaring over a steady driving rhythm section that never gets flashy or meandering. They make it sound effortless and light, while at the same time leading you ponder how other band’s 17 min plus tracks are a comparative slog. Picks up pace a little on the third and final tune and ends rather abruptly – reminding you to get the tea on.
