Historian-Broken Cup | Paradigm

Alt-rock blossomed through the early 90’s and lasted about a decade before an inculpable trail mix of genres took its place. They however blossomed acts like The Smashing Pumpkins, Radiohead, Portishead and The Strokes. These acts changed in their own way, but left a part of that puzzle behind. Historian seems to have turned time and brought out an act from the Pablo Honey era, Broken Cup.

Atoms for Peace is a supergroup consisting of members from Radiohead, RHCP & R.E.M. Hearing that, surely it would be masterpieces this collective would create but Historian is a one man show. Broken Cup sounds like this supergroup, but is drenched in the quick psychedelia the 21st century enjoys. Almost like a micro dose of a moment, the suppressed drums break into the ream of the would be novel-pandering to us the magic of Historian’s versatile voice.

Hopping in the alternating time signature introduction-we are graced only by this interesting beat and his voice. The synths suspend for a while, as the bass takes over after a few bars. The reliance on the little sphere created by the synthesizer allows for a rich phase of time melting-the chords just overlapping each other creating an illusion. This is what a summary of a rainbow would sound like- as the colors flow towards you, they become one. For now, drink from your broken cup.

Self professed metalhead, moderately well read. If the music has soul, it's whole to me. The fact that my bio could have ended on a rhyme and doesn't should tell you a lot about my personality.
