As The Entrance Band approaches a decade of creative activity, its three musicians swiftly and freely charge forward like a carved, finely etched stream… a “Fine Flow,” if you will. Their most recent release showcases the well-rehearsed trio in their finest and most diverse form yet on four instrumental tracks clocking in at 34 minutes. Together, Paz Lenchantin, Derek James and Guy Blakeslee put forth a thousand points of light that leave the listener blinded in burning bliss. Commander (and producer) Farmer Dave Scher steers The Entrance Band ship on their latest expedition in a career that never rests on the waves of popular culture. The trio maps its own stargazing charts, and these four songs serve as a hitchhikers guide to their unexplored but still familiar universe.
Each track on Fine Flow is a journey, ranging from the controlled urgency of the title track to the meandering exploration of “Summertime,” with its layers of guitar that seem to stop time in a steam of pure but subtle heat. “In the Key of Sea” floats until the wave that carries it crests and breaks; “Hands in the Shape of a Wave” introduces a deft, measured saxophone to illicit its watery and glistering tone. Together these four sublime tracks are the soundtrack of both escape and possibility.
The Entrance Band is not interested in repetition. They revel in discovery, and this limited-edition Spiritual Pajamas 12-inch will leave you surfing “The Key of Sea” for many, many waves to come.
