Fallow Land was formed by musicians Whit Fineberg and Evan Veasey. The two have been joined by various artists over the years to form their “existential space pop collective”. Pinscher is the debut EP for Fallow Land.
The first song, “Yang”, sets the tone for the balance of the EP. With the use of jazz guitar and layered lyrics, Fallow Land paint a picture of longing and loss. “I know God has abandoned us” is the stark lyric that ends the song, but it moves us seamlessly to the next song “The Softboi Wields Guilt Like A Floral Knife”. This song, as well as “Faux”, play like Joe Jackson songs with the jazz riffs and verses that feel improvised, but clearly are well thought out.
“410 S. Morgan” has the hardest rock edge of the EP, but also the most tenderly sung lyric lines. The suite of songs on this EP sound as if they were written to be listened to chronologically. It’s a thoughtful EP that makes you look forward to more from Fallow Land.
Pinscher was produced by Chris Bathgate, mixed by Matt Bayles at Red Room Recording, and mastered by Ed Brooks at Resonant Mastering. The album release party will be June 30 at 9:00 pm at Blind Pig in Ann Arbor, MI.
