    By Renee Jones

    'See How They Love Us' is the product of artist/musician Lynn Morresey's self-imposed basement incarceration while he recorded this album. Cellar Uncle is a character he dreamed up who has lived in a cellar for many years and whose world view is based only on his surroundings and how he imagines the outside world to be.

    The result is a gothic and nightmare-tinged album, with the music paralleled by Morresey's striking paintings which adorn the CD cover and booklet. As reference points, Morresey is influenced by Bauhaus, Nick Cave, Joy Division and the films of David Lynch; and his own past experiences in rehab and therapy give him plenty of material to draw upon to shape his dark visions. As well as his own compositions, he performs his takes on Rodgers and Hammerstein's My Favourite Things and Roy Orbison's In Dreams.

    A disturbing and often challenging listen, 'See How They Love Us' is nonetheless an intriguing album, with cover artwork that is worth a look on its own merits. Available from Powertool Records. www.powertoolrecords.co.nz

about

PowertoolRecords Auckland, New Zealand

Rough Church was conceived after the demise of Ferdinand, the band that existed from 1994-2003. Baseball, Concrete, rare steamy rain, tumbleweeds and lost poems about dirty chimneys are what influence this band. It spits out indie pop classic jams that get us compared to everything from Minutemen, Pixies, Broken Social Scene, WAR and Grand Funk. Deal with it! We can't get away from it. ... more
