From the tuesday-night pasta of James Goddard:
I once had the good fortune to go drinking with underwater welders. I was left with the distinct impression that were I fonder of Whitesnake submarine metal-working might have been the life for me. Pastoralia, like underwater welding, is a strange combination of things; clown makeup, throw-back samples, and choreographed dance sequences all blended seamlessly with a power-pop trio. Mitchell Wiebe‘s vocals float disaffectedly over thalassic bass lines and discarded C&C Music Factory beats. What Pastoralia do may be more akin to making collages out of US Weekly in a wading pool than actual under-water welding, but isn’t that just a matter of scale?
