Barricades (the Blanck Mass recording) Fan Memory
Open Your Arms and Welcome
From : Lemming
Of the current Editors songs, this one offers the most hope for an exciting future with this band. After the reclusive experience recording In Dream, VI OLENCE was the first time that I can recall where Editors took major input from a source beyond their own restricted creative circle. Barricades didn't make it onto E6 but was later included on the Blanck Mass Session mini-album. If you had conducted a poll positing what the resulting creation of a collaboration between Benjamin John Power and Editors would sound like, I'm sure this wouldn't have been the consensus. It's the sound of two disparate styles meeting, culminating in a surprisingly upbeat piece of accessible music. I think it works so well because both these artists have been experimental at times, with only degrees of severity separating them. In cooperation, they constructed their own middle ground where Barricades sits. Proof that sometimes if you open your arms and welcome people to your town (or band), beauty happens.
