Universally lauded, the rich sparkling tones of The Ghost of Fashion reached a wider audience, with a wider sonic palette that allowed its cultural cross-referencing to resonate all the more loudly.
Not consciously, but maybe on an emotional level. So it definitely helped me not being afraid of an audience. The venues that they play in are a bit small, but their fans pack the house regardless.
For Barzelay, however, the new territory was not reached without some trepidation.
Once the band takes the stage, you are deafened with cheers until it finally dies down and you can hear the band start to play. Live reviews Clem Snide Eef Barzelay, Brendan Fitzpatrick and Ben Martin decided to come together and form a band called Clem Snide, and that decision has allowed them to travel on an international scale to play their music for everyone who wanted.
The death of irony——what does that even mean [laughing]? Dressed up in suits, they finish off their first song, which is met with great cheer. People are thinking about it too much. Because of how much he speaks to the crowd, the band really gives an intimate, unique show to the crowd.
And although the safest thing for a band on the verge of a breakthrough to do would be to create something akin to The Ghost of Fashion II, Barzelay has used his widening spotlight to make a substantial change in the direction of his craft. He touches upon things like stories from his childhood, or the inspiration of a song, to just a thank you for all of the love and support that the crowd has given them.
The worst thing is just waiting. Hip-hop does that—every five seconds hip-hop will string together these amazing double entendres, like pop reference … play on words kind of things. The idea was to make this sweet, somber song but have these goofy puns in it, to mix those together, I thought was kind of cool.
Between songs Eef takes the time to talk to everyone in the audience while him and the rest of the band tune up their instruments for the next song, a pattern that he continues between all the songs that follow. The endless waiting is unbearable.
In turn, that more vigorously playful aesthetic has again given way to a newly fashioned mix of baritone guitar, banjo played with ebow, and adventurous sampling, all molded by veteran producer Joe Chiccarelli Elton John, Frank ZappaAmerican Music Club into something both restrained and a little soulful.
For Barzelay, this meant employment as a New York City tour guide. It makes no sense at all to me. And no one in Vibe magazine comments on how Biggie is ironic or sardonic.
This one is sort of the opposite of that.Clem Snide has crafted another gem with the band's fourth album, Soft Spot. Released inThe Ghost of Fashion was one of the best releases of that year, and while this record may not quite reach that level, it is a strong document of a band at the top of its game.
