Do I really have a life? Well sometimes when I surf around cdbaby to search for new discoveries late at nights, I start to wonder if I should be in bed instead of sitting here trying to find new music at 2 a.m. One of these moments I ended up listening to the clips of British singer/songwriter David Steele?s 2004 album "Underneath the ice" and it was something with his music that grabbed me. This isn?t the kinda album that you stumble across too often, David?s melancholy side is hard to resist and when he combines it with the psychedelia of Pink Floyd and U2?s experimental rock of the early 90?s - it all becomes a winning concept. But this isn?t the album you?ll love the first time you hear it, I thought there were too many songs in the folk rock vein of Van Morrison when I heard it the first time but the album opens up in a strange kinda way the more you listen to it. My wife thought it sounded like unreleased Pink Floyd songs when she heard this album, so why not describe David Steele as David Gilmour?s lost brother who met Van Morrison at a Cafe in Ireland close to Bono?s residence. "Words and rhythm" is hauntingly beautiful.
