| Remember that song "The Tide"? Yes, The Spill Canvas is still around, and the South Dakota rock quartet released a new record this week: Gestalt.|
With the help of a Kickstarter campaign, Nick Thomas and company recorded and released the new effort sans record label on May 22. The new album holds true to the sound SC fans have become accustomed to over the years, combining the acoustic-emo sounds of Sunsets and Car Crashes, with a catchy rock feel.
The opening track, "Whiskey Dream Kathleen," is a pleasant reminder of The Spill Canvas's beginnings. It is just a guitar and Nick Thomas's voice, dripping with emotions. The album picks up at the second track "Chemicals," with the full band kicking in; not too loud, not screaming, but still rock n' roll.
Halfway through the record, "To: Chicago," comes in with a quick call back to "Sunsets" in its intro, but soon brings the rest of the band in for an intense five-minute opus featuring Andy Jackson.
Gestalt proceeds with a similar sonic landscape throughout, without becoming repetitious, culminating in the epic closer "Sabotage Internal," which eventually brings the album full circle, ending with just Nick Thomas, screaming over a piano.
After listening to the entire album, it seems The Spill Canvas has not altered their signature sound too much. For anyone who has never heard the band, this will be a fun introduction. For fans of all of their efforts, this album will be a welcome addition to an already impressive discography.
