Pumice

Soft Abuse

PUMICE has returned with another set of stirring and shambolic downer hymns. With songs nestled halfway between Xpressway’s searing static and Flying Nun’s dark jangle, STEFAN NEVILLE has quietly created a unique brand of fractured pop since 1991. Despite (or because of) his activity in New Zealand’s cassette underground for the past 15 years, Neville has only recently begun to crawl into the consciousness of outsider music fans. Both the second widely available Pumice release, and the proper follow-up to 2003’s acclaimed Raft CD on Last Visible Dog. Conceived and recorded during an artist residency in Vienna in 2004. The resulting recordings are indebted to Austrian beer, unspeakable horror and wild dogs. Neville’s precariously arranged arsenal of cassettes, chord organ, vocals, drums and guitar has yielded a fragile and fractured masterwork. A stark and melancholic affair, calling to mind Alastair Galbraith, Sun City Girls and Supreme Dicks. Through Neville’s layers of hiss and murk lie harrowing and beautiful songs.
