- Beggards To Chance
And the tongues listen...
Part 2B of BABAL’s “The Circle of Confusion of Tongues” trilogy moves into epic musical territory with the EP, “The Big Everything/ Beggars to Chance”. (total running time 28:24)
To be released on February 28th on limited edition (75) numbered CD (MRRCD-22166) and download - with pre sales beginning on 28 January
“The Big Everything” begins with a bluesy/jazz invitation to experience the grand design of a life imagined. Shifting moods and musical motifs smoothly, this track winds along a tale of desire, yearning and soul-searching.
At times the piece is almost medieval in tone and colour, moving out towards a dark folk-tale ending. Progressive, cinematic and deeply seductive, this piece links specifically to “The Glacier” track from last years’ EP (Part 2A)
From: Bandcamp“Beggars to Chance” is a protest and survive song – backed by tight rhythmic drums, bass, keyboards and guitar synths/solos.
The plaintive call to arms speaks of dying to life and living in the moment – recurring lyrical themes for Karen Langley in this trilogy.
The beautiful psychedelic art of Andy White graces this EP, together with the intense, avant garde artwork of Paul Kopal; all pieced together by the skilful Rachel Armour.
Digested description; A tempestuous Babal-Noir trip; hard-boiled bedlam mixed with transcendental corridors of communication. Musically inventive and arranged and produced with passionate intensity.
“Here we go, here we go, here we go...”
