Artist: UNITED WATERS
Title: Your First Ever River
Label: Arbitrary SIgns
"If you know the man behind United Waters (B.K.A Brian Sullivan) from anything, youll know him as the guitar thudder in Brooklyns densest duo, Mouthus.
And if you were really listening to all those ninety million releases they did in the past few years, youd notice that Mr. Sullivan is a deconstructionist of the highest order.
Molten riffs that would cream the face off of both Nocturno Culto and Dave Murray combined dismantled themselves to reveal rock as a gas and thin air to be nothing but a
petrified turd left over in a backstage buffet platter by Michael Angelo Batio.
On his debut release under the United Waters moniker entitled Your First Ever River, Sullivan continues to expose the contradiction of sound for what it is, but theres not
so much discombobulated shrailing this time round to drive the point home. Brians vision on Your First Ever River sucks in the sound and vibe of mid-nineties basement dwellers,
early seventies robe donning prog rockers and present day turtle necked Germans to continue his pursuit for the never knowing sound. Lets hope your there enough to bask in the revelatory glow of its sound." - Tony Rettman.
