Saul Jarvie - Existential Eczema LP Red Translucent Vinyl 12"

22.00

We are lucky to have just 3 copies of an album I really love by Saul Jarvie pressed on 180gm translucent red vinyl with free download. This is a gem, for real.

“Sometimes you stumble onto an album with zero preconceptions or expectations, and it knocks you flat. If you’ve read that first sentence, it’s already too late to experience Saul Jarvie’s Existential Eczema with a clean slate, so let’s muddy it up some more: the Melbourne songwriter used to front Rival Flight, a band leaning towards post-rock that shared the stage with such late-’90s luminaries as June of 44, Trans Am, Arab Strap and The Spinnanes’ Rebecca Gates. Since then he’s released a 7” as Microflora and worked away on an ambient record. He also successfully crowdfunded an 180gm vinyl release for Existential Eczema, an album that features cameos from Heinz Riegler, Seja, Mirko Vogel (Sekiden), Lucy Roleff, Mark Monnone (The Lucksmiths, Monnone Alone), Sez Wilks (Kikuyu), Peter Joseph Head (Actor Buddhists) and many other familiar friends. So, after that sprawling preamble, what’s it sound like? Moody and brooding, with bone-scraping nods to the Jason Loewenstein side of Sebadoh as well as whiffs of Smog, Sunset Rubdown and other dark horses of indie rock. Start with ‘Tracks Line Up’ if you’re after Jarvie’s poppier potential, and from there the single ‘The Heart, The Art, The Wealth’. But honestly, it’s best to start at the start and just work your way through. The album’s much-delayed vinyl pressing will be available soon here, and although Jarvie doesn’t have plans to launch it at the moment (due to personal health issues), he’s someone you’ll want to keep track of from now on”.
