Bob Kolve – Chase Your Clouds Away
When Bob finally tired of recording cheesy faux-country ballads, corny jazz numbers, and flaccid pop tunes, he wrote the acid-rock banger that is Neptune’s Sea (just do your best to forgive his regrettable decision to sing over it).Here we have a certifiably ungooglable LP (until this post goes up, that is). As far as I can tell, Bob hailed (hails?) from Moses Lake, WA. Yet, he inexplicably felt the need to fly to New York City to record this album, which can only be described as being thoroughly local, except for Neptune’s Sea. According to the liner notes, Bob was after that elusive “creative atmosphere to formularize his unique style.” I’m sure talentless schmucks everywhere are waiting for the patent to expire on that formula, Bob.Ha! I only jest. But really, Bob, I mean this as a fan of Neptune’s Sea. You should have just made more songs like… well, Neptune’s Sea.
