Eros And The Eschaton with All Young Girls Are Machine Guns

The dreamy, layered pop of Home Address for Civil War suggests both the kind of single-minded insularity that comes from a time of isolated focus as well as the intimacy of family. Starting with the booming "20 Different Days," the band buries Perdoni's Breeders-esque melodies deep under layers of shoegaze guitar tones and clouds of reverb before exploding into the catchy electronic hooks of its chorus. It's Last Splash by way of Loveless, and one of the best tracks on the album. Rhythm takes center stage for many of the other songs, with "Carry the Water" marrying booming acoustic drums with growling organ and obscured vocals in an Arcade Fire-like display of triumphant sound. "Terence McKenna" unfurls in a similar way, with distorted percussion and marching guitar melodies all but drowning out Hawkins and Perdoni's driven vocal lines. The band drifts seamlessly through washes of fuzzy ambient pop like "You Know I Do," again pulling drum sounds to the top of the mix. The lopsided amounts of fuzz and joyful noise call to mind the mixing experiments of stalwarts like the Boo Radleys and Slowdive, and also put Eros and the Eschaton in a class with Beach House, A Sunny Day in Glasgow, or any of their brightest dream pop contemporaries. Home Address for Civil War is the warm, delirious product of two creative souls deeply in love, nested away from the rest of the world and finding a collective voice in the process.
