  • Auburn Lull Begin Civil Twilight
    Friday, May 9, 2008

    So, how do you describe perfection? How do you put into words the indefinable, to describe a sound so wonderfully indescribable? Honestly, I can't tell you-I just told you I can’t describe this record. But that's okay, I think I'll let the music speak for itself.

    Listen To: Civil Twilight

    If I were in Auburn Lull, I would be proud of Begin Civil Twilight. It is a creative high point; it is easily their best record to date, and it is a seamless trip through aquatic galaxies and celestial seas. The record proves that they truly are the children of Eno and Budd and Guthrie, yet they possess their own identity. It floats by lackadaisically, without pause, without concern. They take their time with the music they make, and the delicate details of this album prove why those of us who know the band, we don’t mind the wait.

    If I were with Darla Records, I would be proud to release Begin Civil Twilight. It is no secret that the label is one of my favorites. They have released many records I listen to on a weekly basis, and I will support them and sing their praises as long as I am writing about music, but damn--this record is a total, utter mindblower. I would honor James and Chandra by commending them for their good taste, but they already know that.

    As a long-time follower of Auburn Lull, I am extremely proud of Begin Civil Twilight. I remember when this band started out on limited-edition vinyl, and I spent a pretty penny collecting their works, but as I said earlier, I do not complain about the length of time for records to appear; I have yet to be disappointed. And Begin Civil Twilight has played in my overnight playlists for sleepy times ever since I got it.

    I wish I could give you all this record in toto, but, alas, I cannot. I want Auburn Lull to get paid. But consider it a gift, my friend, of the song I have posted, because the record is, without a doubt, one of the most beautiful things you’ll hear all year. Simple words for simple melodies and simply beautiful sounds...
