So far the vowel deficient SHDWPLY hasn't led me astray; they've had great releases from Gary War and Teeth Mountain and now Sore Eros. Mostly the work of Robert Robinson who has spent some time in Ariel Pink's band, and while that touchstone bears some merit, Robinson's songwriting inhabits a much more lush and blissful side of sedation than Pink's Xanax music box melodies. Much of Second Chants feels caught in between the blurred rings that form when you stare at the sun too long, warm and shimmering with a flood of colors just around the edges. There are other modern pop touchstones swimming in this humid soup of an album but honestly to draw comparisons seems to detract from how uniquely absorbing this album is. Second Chants just seems to grow deeper on each listen. As with most SHDWPLY releases this is limited and I've a feeling this might not grow dusty on shelves.
