FYM FIRST IMPRESSIONS: CENTAUR NOIR, LET'S START A WAR- IN REVIEW
With Let's Start A War, Centaur Noir (Deep Cuts Records) take us on a spirit journey down dark digital pastures. It's Jon Burns 2.0, focused on building electronic whirlpools of sonic contemplation. This is what JB had to say about the new record, "My newer material is moving into a definate electronic direction. I play guitar and sing over backing beats that I produce: electronic drums, synths, bass etc..." Let's Start A War is meant for late night long-burn listening.
Jon 'the one man show' Burns is the primary composer/singer/songwriter on his latest release. Burns' voice in the sky vocal dynamics float effortlessly through his ambient electro landscapes as heard on One By One (the fitting album closer). Other highlights include Brand New Enemy, a heady nexus traveling through orchestral cyber valleys. He even pulls off an impressive Centaur Noir take on a tune by Ten Grand (Forever Golden Midwest Rock Heroes). In fact, every track on Let's Start A War could pair very well while watching Blade Runner on mute. For lovers of self-actualization, go to Centaur Noir's website and buy this thing!
