album : Monod Kinetics

artist : My Cats A Stargazer

genre : Ambient, Dream scape, Minimal, Post-Rock, Instrumental

year : 2010


Like watching an ice-cream melt away.
Like taking a leak that was held beyond control.
Like that gaze your lover gives you.
Like that tear a mother lets out watching her newborn.
That is how close the debut release of My Cats A Stargazer gets when translated into the factual world. Throughout the ten songs on Monod Kinetics there never is a point where you would feel forced to have gotten into their side of the world.

Breaking down the album and hence baring what is behind those minds which have come together for this project, the music can be felled into dreamscape, post-rock, ambient, instrumental stuff with minimal vocals. In the age of chaos and despair I have a feeling you can listen to this album only when you are all by yourself. Even two can be a crowd, even a sniffle can be disturbing.

…morning swell… gives the inaugural part of our day a plain transparent quality, …evening air… presents the latter half in an unpolluted manner. …cloud drifter… and …snowshoes… stops time around you while …waveout… and …monolith… pushes you to high five life. The music and vocals on …after arbor… and …undress the universe… wins your heart while …celestial spin… and …future elements… steal your worries.

My Cats A Stargazer drives home the point that if you need to inhale some kind of an energy for upliftment then welcome it with flared nostrils. A visible feature of this band is that if you are a dreamer you ought to listen to this music and if you aren’t then you should just start dreaming.
