Isidore
Self-Titled
(Brash Music, 2004)

Steve Kilbey, former front man for The Church (?Under The Milky Way?), returns to the spotlight on an amazing electronic-rock collaboration with Remy Zero?s Jeffrey Cain. As with the dreamy, chilly soundscapes he created in the ?80s, here Aussie songwriter Kilbey touches on universal human subjects with an almost eerie precision. The songs (written mostly through the mail, as Kilbey lives Down Under and Cain in L.A.), particularly the dreamy, lilting opener, ?Musidora,? evoke a plethora of emotions?ranging from pure joy to the depths of melancholy. Interesting side-note: The pair include somewhat of a ?manifesto? with their press kit, where, among other things, they pledge that they?d rather ?... have nothing to do with the music industry,? but that they are ?quite capable of making use of it like anyone else.? They refer to Isidore as both a musical and a global entity, both of which provide ?total liberation of the mind? and ?a cry of the mind turning back on itself.? They also make the rather grand, sweeping claim that they are determined to ?make a sonic revolution? and ?show the fragility of sound,? using ?the hammers of harmony.? Well, I don?t know about all that, I mean, it all sounds quite exciting?but do I have to dress up for the revolution? I?d rather stay home in the basement and listen to this album, if that?s alright with you, Steve-O. Very cool new stuff, though, from a pair of highly talented (if a bit eccentric) chaps. Cheers!
