Beyond the Bone Orchard
Bone trees and skull blossoms. C@B is the acoustic based solo project of Cameron Babb (the Icarus Construct, Aria in Binary, Bevelle Apparatus). Babb's approach to song writing is as intellectual as it is emotional, and very effective. The melodies will keep you guessing, the hooks will keep you listening, and the lyrics will keep you thinking. 'Beyond The Bone Orchard', the debut release, produces catchy melodies that reflect on the transitory nature of modern culture. This album is destined to be an Asheville indie classic with enough evocative intimacy and commanding melody to satisfy any craving. Most of the album is very stripped down, but an arsenal of instrumentation is summoned occasionally, adding just the right intensity. The 12 tracks are inventive, and introspective, and the effect is subtly tragic. Perfect if you're a fan of: Elliott Smith, The Talking Heads, Bright Eyes, Cursive, Death Cab for Cutie, Billy Bragg, Radiohead.
