Edison Glass
Let Go EP



Artist Info: Discography
Album length: 4 tracks: 15 minutes, 49 seconds
Street Date: August 28, 2007


Unfairly doling out an appetizer when palettes are slaking for the main course- Edison Glass releases the digital EP, Let Go. The anticipation of their delayed-until-oh-eight LP (Time Is Fiction) is really not going to abate with this 15-minute collection. Quite to the contrary- after listening to these three new cuts and a technically superb remix of an old favorite- my expectations and impatience have only intensified. My head may just explode into candy because of the wait.

That's not to say that breaking down and sparing the few bills necessary to acquire these four tracks isn't worth it. Fans of the band or the genre will be in for a treat… but simultaneously left wanting so very much more. The title track for the EP kicks things off in typical Edison fashion, drums practically forcing your toe a-tapping, guitar tap-n-slide progressions, and Joshua Silverberg's unique vocals… And speaking of the vocals- track two is a contemplative-chaotic piece called "All Our Memories"- which seems relatively typical at the outset… with the string accompaniment and the xylophone and then the 3 and a half minute mark hits and Silverberg's voice tears the roof off. Not in a falsetto… he cracks and sustains equally on up the scale gloriously higher than we've ever heard him go. "Cold Condition" is equally as rousing of a melody, sonically harkening back to their previous work… but slightly more formulaic than the other songs on the EP. Ending things (did I mention too soon?) is "A Burn Or A Shiver (Lark Remix)"- a track from the 2006 album of the same name, broken apart and reassembled with chiming alternate back-melodies and lots and lots of layered effects droning in and out. You know Bernard? Yeah- it's like that.

Overall, it's a very well done EP, showcasing Edison Glass' augmentation of their sound, and a very encouraging indication of what the new album will sound like. But with Time Is Fiction's release date reportedly moving from November 07 to February 08- it looks like we'll be left hungry for more… a while longer.
