Tragic Pote 7"
by Volunteer's Park

This 7" release comes from Silk Flowers' frontman, Aviram Cohen, the group’s vocalist, and right away “Tragic Pote” gives off the feel of which parts of that group were his ideas. Nothing but synth programming and vocals, in a way that I wouldn’t call minimal, so much as it is simultaneously sparse and spacious, sad at the cellular level and learning how to cope through humble beauty. “Jerusalem Stone” is an instrumental but leverages the same amount of pathos, and none of it is overdone, even as it is boilerplate melancholy in its delivery. This pitches more towards a New Wave era lost singer-songwriter obsessed with dance music but unable to dance himself out of the deep seat. Really great record here.
