A ten-year veteran of the Providence, RI scene, Redfearn uses his Eyesores as something of a vast ethno-folk-chamber-pop experiment. Sorry for all those hyphens, let me explain: ethno = unusual, vaguely eastern european melodies and chord progressions; folk = largely acoustic and folk instruments (violins, woodwinds, horns, accordions, hurdy-gurdy) tho some electronic treatments of same; chamber-pop = intimate arrangements of loosely pop song structures but definitely not rockin'. (Think Rachel's.) It's all almost as if some future ethnomusicologist came back to a time and place not unlike our own to make field recordings or, in the spirit of Can's "Ethnomusicological Forgery Series," faked it. All very interesting even if it not thoroughly captivating.

Alec K. Redfearn and the Eyesores use many interesting instruments (accordion, hurdy-gurdy, cello, violin, double bass, French horn, bassoon, guitar, gong-drum) and there are some eastern European sounds. Their music feels like a performance with lots of instrumentation and storytelling. This album is full of sadness with tracks 4 through 11 forming the collection "I Am the Resurrection and the Light." The liner notes he tells us that "'I Am the Resurrection and the Light' is a song cycle I started developing in 2003. The piece is intended as a eulogy for several of my friends who died of drug overdoses and addiction-related suicide as well as a meditation on my own spiritual history and bankruptcy in relation to my own experiences as an addict."

"Blue on White" (4) features accordions and strings and starts to build up with backing female vocals, chorus style, and drums. The song becomes chaotic near the end gybe! style. "Rising" (10) begins with an accordion and female vocals, the song becomes layered with male vocals and fast-paced and urgent. The song continues to build up with strings added and noisier and noisier sounds and ends with a wash out kind of noise. This noise continues into the start of the next track "Blue on White (reprise)" (11) which is an instrumental with slow marching strings, some chirping noise before it becomes quiet with some thumping. "The Radiator Hymm" (5) has a world influence with interesting drums, layered vocals and instruments and ends with some radiator noises. The radiator noise merges into the next track "The Burning Hand" (6) which is a slow song with steady cymbals, violin, female vocals with some interesting sounds near the end. The sounds merge into the next song, an instrumental, "River of Glass" (7) which becomes noisier and distorted with some sirens. This merges into "The Flesh of the Drum" (8) with a continuous rushing noise and drums, bells, strings and quiet male and female vocals begin.
