Swamp O Delic (CD) – Bob Urh & The Bare Bones


(translated excerpt) “It’ll be clear why the band is named Bare Bones, since each track has been stripped down to the bone, which leads to a fascinating result”. – Joost Jan Meertens, Planet Trash (Netherlands) (22/01/2008).

Once in a while I come across a disc I was intended to review but fell through the cracks due to various reasons (work, time constraints, etc). Imagine my surprise when I was organizing some CDs and found this disc – so I put it on. The most recent (to the best of my knowledge) Bob Urh disc is a collection of minimalist bluesy rock and folk featuring mostly straight-ahead guitars and basic, simple percussion though occasionally weaving in elements of noise and psychedelia at moments. The overall feel in these songs builds a sometimes dark album with a crude vibe evoking swamps, zombies, failed relationships, and the like throughout. While Swamp O Delic isn’t a disc that fits easily into one category, this is a listenable, if sometimes unsettling, aural ride. I’m glad I finally found this but I wish I could’ve gotten to this sooner. – Boone Stigall, The Trouble With Normal, issue 92
