Isidore – Life Somewhere Else
Release Date: February 21st, 2012
It all started as a tribute.
A return of inspiration.
Jeffrey Cain (Remy Zero) handed Steve Kilbey (The Church) a disc mysteriously credited to “Isidore.” Much to Cain’s surprise, what was once an instrumental came requited by words and melody sung in Kilbey’s distinctive baritone – a collaboration was born. 8 years later Isidore has reappeared!
Life Somewhere Else is a sprawling epic featuring another sterling vocal performance by Kilbey (perhaps his best ever) and Cain’s sterling sonic alchemy. Though short enough to fit on a single compact disc, Life Somewhere Else is spread across four sides of 180-gram vinyl – the medium where the album’s sequence is enjoyed best.
Haunting and beautiful, Life Somewhere Else has a power beyond its corporeal form.
It’s a masterpiece.
Life Somewhere Else makes its beautiful way across 67 minutes, an album content to take its own sweet time to reach its destination, happily exploring the nooks and crannies along the way.ALL MUSIC
