There are some real interesting underground rock outfits emerging from the East Coast. To that list add Fossil Cliffs, a new solo project from Mike D'Eon, of the excellent Kuato. He's assisted by keyboardist/vocalist Julia Weir on this strong self-titled debut EP, recorded in the basement studio of the Acadian Embassy label. There's a nice diversity in the material, from the stoner rock feel of "In My Eyes" to the hypnotic "Wake Me Up". Trivia note: did you know there are actual physical Fossil Cliffs in Nova Scotia? This rock equivalent is equally impressive.
The record was launched with a gig at Gus' Pub in Halifax recently.
