A diagnosis lament from Pumice, complete with a fatigued, wheezing (yet hopeful!) ode to his condition on the A side and artwork to match. Stefan Neville mostly returns to one-man-band mode on Platelets, save for some crucial violin and keyboard by Jade Farley on “Haemochromatosis…” augmenting Neville’s accordion and guitar moves. The flip is pure classic unadulterated Pumice bash & chug of the highest order. As beautiful and necessary as all of his recordings.
