full-length outing from Fabulous Diamonds is a
continuation of the lush and mesmerizing electro
/ percussive landscapes explored on their
self-titled debut LP (released on Siltbreeze in
2008). Jarrod Zlatic and Nisa Venerosa spark
lots of musical embers along the way: dub,
trance, house, ambient, minimalist, hints of
Suicide and Terry Riley--basically everything
from Silver Apples to Silver Apples of the Moon.
Diamonds are equally at home in indie gulags,
art galleries or disco gullies. Fans of the more
esoteric side of Siltbreeze--Blues Control and
US Girls, especially--should be mightily chuffed
by the beauteous hypnotic (hypnagogic?) pop Fab
Ds are laying down here. Look for the band to
tour Europe in mid/late 2010.
"Part minimalist drone, part dub, and part pagan
sleepover incantation, Melbourne, Australia's
Fabulous Diamonds specialize not so much in
songs but in pools of unease.... They embrace
bass frequencies instead of treble, easy tempos
instead of manic energy, and a full-bore
penchant for the macabre. But where similarly
minded Southern Hemisphere contemporaries like
Naked on the Vague brandish sharp edges and
jagged textures, Fabulous Diamonds songs are
smooth enough to run your fingers over."
