***BRONZE is an exercise in impulse. Bronze is also the San Francisco based trio of BRIAN HOCK, ROB SPECTOR, and MILES FRICTION. In early 2006, Hock moved back to his native San Francisco from Berlin and took up residence with Spector in the warehouse / show space known as The Cave. The two conspired to start a new live project and enlisted the help of Friction to form Bronze. After preliminary attempts to find the right environment to house the Copper Club, the Secret Society of the Bronze Age, Miles founded the Trojan Cavern in San Fran's Dogpatch neighborhood. From this outpost, Bronze undergo disciplined training exercises in various weaponry, sonic hypnosis, horticulture and all-important copper talk. It's also from the Trojan Compound that Copper was created. Stream-of-consciousness lyrical cooing and restrained analog trickery rest atop constant cog rotation grooves on Copper. These elements yield a truly conductive album, abundant in compositions that beg for a listener's oxidizing ear. Commencing with "A Showdown Of Sorts", the record assumes a vague narrative aided by the allure of Tuxedomoon / Ralph Records-y exoticism, albeit less claustrophobic. "Showing Them" staggers into even Wierd-er territory, with eye flashes and spots of Legendary Pink Dots. "So Slow" and "The Rouge Became" are sister tracks fallen not far from the same Silver Apple(s) tree. "Wits" and "Fumes In Suits" counter clockwork like a high-pressure Units track and place Copper in the lexicon of San Fran synthesized and syncopated anti-stardom.
