Notes


Animal Lovers is Seafog’s 3rd vinyl release following on from Raise Your Skinny Fist and Dig It On Up , also put out on Zelle Records.
The band have come into their own continuing to use the formula of weekend garage jamming and crafting these jams into songs to bring the double album, Animal Lovers into life. Although Seafog are still magpies and obviously wear their musical influences on their collected sleeves, they have a unique sound.
South Island audiences have been treated to the recorded songs played live recently with the band saying they have played some of their best gigs to date. Another noticeable change has been the gradual separation of the guitars and Martyn Sadler’s backing vocals giving the Port Chalmers three-piece fronted by Robin Sharma another dimension.
Once self-proclaimed as folk, punk, country rock, Seafog have formed into a sonic, assault, groove. This double album will have the answers for anyone wanting a fix into listening to something new, unique or invigorating. The band also have plans to release this epic vinyl project onto digital formats. Catch them live.

Delirium
Lost at sea in an oceanic fog somewhere north of Dunedin city centre is Port Chalmers’ trio Seafog. After an enthralling, spindly debut album of spiderweb guitar-pop called “Raise Your Skinny Fist” (2015), Seafog delivered a more solid treat on their “Dig it On Up” EP (2017). Now they are back with an audacious double album of blistering reverb-washed jangling guitar noise. Here’s the relatively calm and restrained “Voice” to ease your way into Seafog’s universe.Seafog’s twin guitar din is massive on “Animal Lovers”. The bass-less trio – Robin Sharma (vocals & guitar), Nigel Waters (guitar) and Marty Sadler (drums) – gets a sonic turbo-charge from another sparkling, resonating echo-chamber production from recording alchemist Forbes Williams (who also recorded recent Dunedin albums by Francisca Griffith and Negative Nancies). The band sound like they are emitting sonic sparks here – a Roman Candle of noise.

There’s a lot to digest on “Animal Lovers” – 16 dense and meaty songs, including a booming revisiting of “Purakaunui” from guitarist/ vocalist Robin Sharma’s previous late 1990s/ early 2000’s band Jetty.

Sharma’s idiosyncratic vocal delivery – including his distinctive stream-of-semi-concious-delerium-fuelled excursions – give the songs personality, even if it sometimes sounds like he’s possessed by forces beyond his control.

“Animal Lovers” is a perfect combination of raw and distressed Sonic Youth-styled wall-of-guitar noise frenzy (showcased on the relentless thundering 12-minute drone-jam “Feelings”) often set to pulsing motorik drumming, and the loose jangling lo-fi charm of bands like The Verlaines and The Clean in their earliest forms (as the more restrained and crisp “Voice” here demonstrates).

“Animal Lovers” is available on vinyl. It’s available now in Relics record store in Dunedin, or from the band. It may be in other NZ shops sometimes. The LP release is on Vienna-based NZ-focused label Zelle Records so if you are in the Northern Hemisphere head there to buy a copy of the LP. It is an essential acquisition.
Antuiserum
Seafog: Animal Lovers (Zelle Records/digital outlets)
Available as a limited edition double vinyl set from Zelle Records, a record label out of Vienna which releases New Zealand artists (Bill Direen, Jay Clarkson, Marineville and Vorn among them), this is quite a swathe of music by Seafog out of Port Chalmers.
Recorded in 2017 at the Anteroom in that capital of alt.whathaveyou near Dunedin, these 16 songs are propelled by a furious soundscape of distorted, bulldozer guitars which is most often exciting and pulse-pumping.

Those unafraid of the Gordons, Skeptics, Bailterspace et al will feel very much at home here.

But what gets this past being a sheer wall of sound are the songs by mainman singer/guitarist Robin Sharma delivered by drummer Marty Sadler and guitarist Nigel Waters with engineer Forbes Williams guitar on ‘feelings’.

Sharma's vocal hit a place between the dismissive tone of Lou Reed, the commitment of Iggy, a bit of Mark E Smith's declamatory style or the desperation of a Sixties garageband singer who knows this raucous song might be their only shot.

And these are emotionally powerful songs fueled by adrenalin and intelligence (White is Not a Colour, Centre of the Heart) and sometimes ride a ramshackle pop-rock structure: Colours and Sanctuary for example sound ripe for student radio repeat-play; Feelings is early Bunnymen/Teardrop Explodes as the soundtrack for the nightshift in an heavy industry factory.

They pull things back in a few places, notably on the big strum, slashing drums and ballad-like melody of Life is a Truck (“you get hit”) which opens seductively but gets more sonically intense as it aims towards the middle of its tight three minutes before stripping back again to let a key sentiment shine through: “It's okay to turn the voices off”.

Looking for a Friend is close to David Kilgour of his Here Come the Cars period, toned down and intimate.

Indian Reservation refers to the occupation at Standing Rock to protest the Dakota Access Pipeline (with a neatly cynical but double-edged “born in the USA”). What the Heck is pretty funny with its reference to Patrick Duffy (The Man from Atantis).

The only previous album by Seafog/Sharma which Elsewhere gave consideration to was Dig It On Up in 2017 (although we mentioned the earlier Raise Your Skinny Fist with sample track of the previous year) but this double album is much more consistent and coherent in its approach and delivery.

Yes, it may be a challenge for many. But without compromise Sharma/Seafog have delivered a heavily atmospheric collection which refines their earlier instincts into a powerful – and sometimes punishing – collection which often feels more liberating and light-filled than densely dark.Seafog’s twin guitar din is massive on “Animal Lovers”.

Miromice
Our most recent post focused on the melodic side of jangle pop, but to end our day we will direct your ears to a band we have covered before: Robin Sharma's Seafog. The New Zealanders have released the double LP Animal Lovers, offering 16 tracks that explore the fuzzed, aggressive side of jangle. This is music for a rainy, windy, storm-driven coast. Loud, and hot to the touch, this is music for those who love rock music. Check out three tracks below, and then get lost in Animal Lovers at the Bandcamp link.
