Appliance – Pacifica

This is a perfectly executed piece of instrumental rock with vocals (huh?). What I mean is ‘Pacifica’ could have operated quite capably without James Brookes deep utterances, as it is his output makes something great even better. The Exeter trio Appliance made 3 albums, the last of which ‘Are You Earthed’ appeared in 2003. ‘Pacifica’ was the closing track on their debut ‘Manual’ which owed its sound to gallery of references such as Spacemen 3 and Sonic Youth. But, Appliance were more than just a facsimile and their haul of several dozen instruments meant their hooks were often shrouded in the most exotic of aural fogs. ‘Pacific’ is a smooth operator, deft and blessed with a sleight of hand that’ll rob you of your emotions before returning them back with a rosier complexion.
