Just Everywhere is Paul Baird and Silk Of Stars his debut solo LP under the name. A compilation of varied EPs, as well as a bunch of new material, Baird’s swooning vocal is instantly recognisable to I See Angels fans, tying the album together by carrying the melody while his music heads off more experimentally.
Silk Of Stars jumbles digitally corrupted dream-pop with the hum of ambience and heavy guitar scree. Strewn liberally into the mix come several piano-led bouts of songwriting, reverbed vocal loops and fragile harmonies surging alongside pretty instrumentals, samples and captures that all help push Silk Of Stars out to left-field.
An aggressive acid eats away at the running order throughout. The tracks play urgently as a result, totemic slabs of lo-fi shoegaze noise periodically running riot with distortion pedals and protesting guitar squeal. These are songs that go everywhere and swell to be everywhere. Stumble into their mists and you may not find your way out.
