Quick Overview

The Curious Mystery stitch together 60's-styled psychedlia with smoky garage guitars, Eastern drones, and post-soul experimentation; a new gospel. Rotting Slowly was a true debut: a journey into new landscapes, charting the depths of canyons. With the release of We Creeling, The Curious Mystery are no longer the stranger in town; they've left the bluffs and entered the valley. They run the drugstore, they shot the noose off the neck of the town drunk because they believe in redemption. Recorded in 2010 by Karl Blau, featuring the vocal/guitar tandem of Shana Cleveland and and Nicolas Gonzalez.

Details

We Creeling finds the Curious Mystery's Shana Cleveland and Nicolas Gonzalez expanding the plaintive, reverberated sound of Rotting Slowly with new bassist Bradford Button and a long list of contributers, including violinist Gabriel Will (Hive Dwellers), pianist Andrew Dorsett, organist Aaron Otheim, cellist Dylan Rieck, and drummer Kristian Garrard (Thousands), along with a small choir and the help of multi-instrumentalist/return producer Karl Blau. Unlike many of the K Records outings that feature a mish-mash of guest artists from the label, We Creeling sounds like the work of a well-practiced band. The playing is complex, with shifting song structures that angle away from the duo’s melancholy verse-chorus style. As a more psychedelic album, it starts with the Ravi Shankar-inspired drones of “Up in the Morning” and unfolds slowly. Garage, sadcore, and dream pop are still a big part of the washy mix, but the Curious Mystery roam freely, going from songs that have the feel of the Velvet Underground’s self-titled album into lapses of art rock doodling or into smokey desert jams that share the spirit of the Doors’ “The End.” Even with some meandering, the record holds to a narcotic pace. Inherently, it's a more complicated and restless listen than the sensual stillness of the debut, but it's also a compelling one.
