ERNIE COOMBS // KURVI TASCH
"White" (PV003)


The first track, appropriately titled “All About Me”, sets the mood for this album. A shallow snare pops breezily along to gentle, unassuming arpeggios and finicky chords, while the vocalist cheerfully calls out a series of “ooh’s, ah’s, and oh’s.” It can actually be quite hilarious to listen to. Aside from what one could consider the definitive track on this album, “Blood on Our Hands”, this album melds together as if it were just one long, rambling jam session devoid of structure. That being said, “Blood on Our Hands” alone is worth getting the album for; it really is an incredible culmination of all the best elements of Coombs and Tasch, and features not only a chorus, but an effective use of dynamics!
