The Opposite is a music studio album recording by ALEC K. REDFEARN AND THE EYESORES (essive Rock) released in 2018 on cd, lp, vinyl and/or cassette. Six years on from 'Sister Death', and Redfearn is back with his latest album with The Eyesores. Just one look at the line-up lets know that this is quite a different approach to many.
This is the seventh album from Alec and his band, who have been purveying their rather unique style of alternative music for more than ten years now. The music is complex and very different, grounded in his own accordion work, but somehow it is also easy to listen to with its' melodic nod back the era of psychedelia when anything was possible.
The Opposite is the Eyesores’ long-awaited follow-up to their wonderful 2012 release Sister Death. Where that album reached toward the epic with a roster of special guests and larger instrumentation, The Opposite pares things down to the core band, with an accompanying intimacy and intensity. The sparse instrumentation is extended with the use of pedals and amplification that blend with the acoustic instruments to offer a unique, alien palette from which to draw. The personal and the universal, the poetic and the prosaic, esoteric explorations and the humorous insanities of daily life – all come together in the hypnotic and pulse-pounding songs of Alec K. Redfearn and the Eyesores.
Alec K. Redfearn & the Eyesores. It’s been around six years since Sister Death, the last album by Redfearn and the Eyesores, and that’s an virtual eternity in the life of a band. A ess approach gives the album’s lyrics a feeling of dreamlike imagery and elusive associations. EAC extraction logfile from 14. January 2019, 17:37. Redfearn and The Eyesores, The Opposite.
