27 - animal life

27 - animal life (front cover)

Full-length CD
Apr 2002

Here it is: animal life by 27. Their first full-length album.

Outside, a sheep is standing stark and alone. It's a simple image...but look closer and you'll find a world full of intricate detail and emotion. Inside, 27 delivers the sonic parallel. Sometimes the music is bare-boned, honest pop, delicate and alluring in its nakedness. At other times, guitar and sample driven constructions turns songs into cities in motion. It's nature living in sin with technology...but feeling no guilt.

Here's what others of a literary bent have said of 27:

"27 combines elements of slowcore, psych-folk and Neil Young style fuzz for a moody, gloomy mix that sounds like either a less languorous Cowboy Junkies or a less tart Mazzy Star." - Metroland, Albany NY

"There is an anxious balance of gritty, lazy guitar lines with subtle, swelling dynamics that create the feeling this is what Pink Floyd would sound like if they recorded in a bedroom with Aimee Mann on vocals" - Outburn, Los Angeles CA

"27 bleed through a lush, intricately built system of Slint and Seam influenced equations, arriving at a dark and brooding sound that Cat Power and Helium lovers should adore." - Seattle Weekly
