Bang To This-Hook the Captain

Reach, Red Blood

“Moving on to the next track, 'Reach' has vocals performed by Petra Faulk, and they are very good. A housey track with break-beats and sweet pads.

 

Track 8 of this cd is one of my favourites, 'Red Blood' mixes Petra's vocals with steady grooves and hot melodies.”

Bang To This-Hook the Captain

Reach

“My fav song is "Reach" because it reminds me of the old school band, "Cocteu Twins - Heaven or Las Vegas."”

 

 

 

 

Amazon.com Review

 

Reach

“Bang to This, his sophomore effort by a few months, represents a pleasant separation from his first release. Where the former was a fair collection of club songs, most too repetitive to be remarkable, a few gems on this album truly set it apart. The opening track, "What's Inside of Us", sets a good tone. This is followed lazily by "Reach", "In Dreams", and "Take Me Away".

The rest of the album is primarily occupied by decent if prosaic club/house to round it out. Even so, Bang to This represents a very listenable, easygoing indie electronic album. I look forward to the Captain's next full release with open arms.”

“I like this release as it provides different underlines of the ‘Spiderwoman (original)’. Again XEW provides an understatement of great experimental music. ^_^”

In The Beginning

 

“This album is just insane! My personal favorites are 'If You Love' and 'Angel Dawn'. XEW displays an excellent array of music. Highly recommend a listen. – Kevin”
