Editorial Reviews

This is the second full-length release by Seattle's Bruno Pronsato (Steven Ford). Why Can't We Be Like Us embodies his old passion for playing the drums as well as his addiction to ones and zeros. Instead of creating streamlined minimal, he has more of an abstract sound on his mind -- one that lives on a dark, organic and percussive note. He has always been unpredictable and funky with a twist between the beats, his tracks often relying on devious turns, flickering sounds, warm bass lines and some free-riding vocals. These tracks tell a story with long, grooving compositions that are full of rhythms that twist around bubbling sounds that seem to launch out of his very own inner space. Sometimes a piano melody dances around, then an undefinable vibrancy chirps out of the background, and in the next moment some unheard buzzing sighs apart from space and time. This album feels like a logical progression from his EPs for labels like Orac, Philpot, Hello? Repeat and his creative powers as one part of the duo Half Hawaii on Perlon. Musical suspense that processes feelings and soul through electronic vibrations. Everything sounds like Bruno Pronsato plays it himself and follows the "I am an instrument" dictum of the spacy free jazzer, Sun Ra. Bruno Pronsato lives in the space of the inner-sound.
