When a band labels themselves as a cacophony of contrasting musical genres, like “psychedelic grunge jazz”, the chances are their music is either groundbreaking or it falls into the “really fucking stupid” category. Fortunately for you (and me) Montreal based psychedelic-grunge-jazz five-piece Fleece has found the perfect combination of sounds. Their latest album Scavenger is a heterogeneous mix of genres, a dash of jazz scatting, a few cups of gnarly garage-rock guitar riffs, half a handful of some cool laid-back drum beats, pre-whipped with a walking bass line, then put in the oven, set ‘atmospheric vibes’ to high and finish it all off with a sprinkle of sensual brass.
On January 20, 2015 Fleece dropped their second release Scavenger following up an EP that came out last April. The band is currently based out of Montreal with members originating from Vancouver and Toronto. The album was produced by Patrick McDowall at The Oven and The Hive and mixed by him at Zug Island. Fleece actually used the website to master the album, which worked out fine but there is never an alternative for over-paying a professional set of ears.
Lots of sounds on the album mean lots of instruments. Matthew Rogers recorded vocals and keyboard while Jonathan Bell took care of more vocals, guitar and the saxophone. Colin Spratt, Gabe Miller and Ethan Soil played the guitar, bass and drums, respectively. Then Ben Michel and Luc Ainsworth-Wiebe on trumpet filled out the brass section with Nathaniel Glassmon playing trombone. Fleece lists their influences as wide-ranging from Mac Demarco to Miles Davis, including but not limited to BadBadNotGood, Nirvana, Snarky Puppy, Charles Mingus and Black Flag. They cite their “mission” as it is to blend the genres of psychedelic rock, grunge and jazz to create a new take on the indie rock genre. Mission accomplished boys. Scavenger successfully incorporates the most interesting features of the some extremely diverse genres and manages to piece together a compelling work of musical art.
“Aliens” is the first track off the album. Right away Fleece starts the album with a very trippy riff. The song continues to admit dreamy vibes as the vocals surf on top of the effects ridden instruments, it later picks up with some distorted guitar and more than a few cool licks. The second song “Wake and Bake” is more of a venture into the garage rock tone. It begins with a wimpy sounding guitar playing the gnarliest solo and just refuses to let up, like the short kid in your group of friends who has finally come to terms with being short and just makes all the jokes in his expense that much funnier. The song “Demanding” is something else. It is super jazzy and even begins with scat singing followed later in the track by an incredible sax sound. The sexy sax is followed up with a gorgeous guitar tone that swells the tune past recognition. “CIA” starts off with a real groovy guitar lift, the foot-tapping riff plays alongside the super catchy chorus; you will be singing, “fuck the CIA” all week (DISCLAIMER: The Scene Magazine in no way supports the fornication of and/or with the American Central Intelligence Agency). Followed up by the quirky track “Chocolate Milk”, which lends itself as a great second closer with dynamics going from whisper volume to a controlled chaos of loud music and yelling at the end. Scavenger closes with “Narcozep”. The tuneful tune coaxes listeners into unavoidable bouts of head-bobbing and undeniable aural pleasure. As the playful instruments slowly turn into a rambunctious crescendo of melodies and madness, Fleece burns their album into your memory.
