Digipak CD
Relatively Close To The Sea

Item number: HR_091

EAN: 4038846310911

Date of release: 01.11.2008

The album features contributions from Greg Ferrari (Womb) on electric guitar, Joanna Quail (SonVer) on cello, Matt Howden (Sieben) on violin; and Arthur Shaw (Cutty Sark) on keyboard. Dominic O'Connor (eulogised in Silent Life's 'Dominic Song') is there in spirit - the album includes a cover version of one of his compositions, previously unreleased in any form. 'Dented Mess' harks back to the existential pop elements of Truffles of Love; 'The German' is a dalliance with Schlager-esque murder balladry; while the title track itself combines slide guitar and lo-fi synths with the Naevus band sound. The centerpiece of the album, and Naevus' greatest recorded work to date, is the 18-minute 'Go Grow', takes the progressive influences that have been present in Naevus since the beginning (Hawkwind, Pink Floyd, etc.) and weds them with soaring cello and John Cale-esque piano pounding to produce a sublime epic.
