about

This is a split 12" with The Sly & Unseen. theslyandunseen.bandcamp.com/album/summer-passes-ep

Complementing and offsetting The Sly And Unseen’s gentle extroversion are the contemplative structures and inward-looking songs of Caught In The Wake Forever’s Fraser McGowan. Under his solo guise, McGowan has honed his trade mark melancholic sounds and concerns through a plethora of EPs and collaborations and has also released three albums to date, all of which explore listener challenging hyper-personal themes and subjects.

Having grown frustrated with the sense of repetition and routine inherent in the recording process, ‘Evidence Of Fractures’ sees the Paisley based McGowan resolutely and methodically strip bare his technological resources to reinforce his baring-of-the-soul lyricism. Computers are forsaken in favour of simple take analogue improvisation and the stress (both musical and lyrical) is upon breaking old habits, embracing uncertainty and capturing the moment.

The three instrumental tracks were recorded over a two day period and largely improvised using analogue synths and guitar, whereas the songs touch on new ground as well as bringing in the previously unexplored addition of a second vocalist in the form of Donna McInnes.

From the drifting tranquillity of ‘To Wild Flowers Forgotten’ to the downtrodden lounge sensibilities of ‘Erskine’s Greatest’, these densely layered soundscapes provide the listener with tales and moods of fragility.
