William the Conqueror (from the album Excuse Me While I Vanish available on Chrysalis Records)
Surrounding themselves in a sea of vintage gear, Indie trio William the Conqueror offer a sonic kaleidoscope on their recent release, Excuse Me Whie I Vanish. Dipping into psychedelic British dancehall beats and sing-a-longs the offer “Elsie Friend”, opening the album on the seductive audio undertow pull of “The Puppet and The Puppeteer”, bookending the first track when William the Conqueror exit the album on Country Rock of “In Your Arms”. Sonically, Excuse Me While I Vanish is a musical study in dark and light, a drifting rhythm supporting the instrumental build as the arrangement rises in “L.W.Y.” and peacefully idling on the smooth flow of “Shots Fired from Heaven” before the sound explodes.
The sonic contrasts of Excuse Me While I Vanish are what holds the album together. In the hands of William the Conqueror, all musical changes are guided along seamlessly over mixes of melody and tones. A dominant thump teases a heavier sound in the jangly opening of “The Tether” as the promised sonics rise up around a persistent drumbeat. Wearing a “Sheepskin Sleeve” William the Conqueror offer spoken/sung rants over non-stop stomp as the seek “A Minute’s Peace” on a rollercoaster of soft/heavy melody, clearing a path with the straight-ahead Rock’n’Roll beat offering tribute in “Somebody Else” and wrap “The Bruises” in heavy chords and healing grooves.
