Despite being on the verge of a second release under the Baltic
Fleet moniker. Paul Fleming seems intrinsically tied to his role as
sometime keyboardist for Echo and the Bunnymen. Which is a shame,
because this project is something very special indeed. The cover of
said release, Towers, features a series of vast cooling towers, a
none-more-fitting indication of the sprawling, post-industrial
landscapes lurking inside.
The driving kraut motorik draws unavoidable, but entirely favourable, comparisons to the likes of Neu, but this is undoubtedly a musical venture with its own distinct identity.
Fleming's synth work is expectedly outstanding, and tracks such as March of the Saxons succeed in being ambient and evocative, expansive and ambitious.
