Breather Resist - Only In The Morning
By Chris GramlichPity the musical adversaries of one Mr. Evan Patterson — they just don’t stand a chance. A founding member of Louisville, KY’s groundbreaking, innovative and sadly unrecognised masters of musical mayhem the National Acrobat, and current member of powerhouses Black Cross (formerly Black Widows), with brother Ryan (also ex-Acrobat) and ex-Endpoint/By The Grace of God Vocalist Rob Pennington, Evan’s latest musical riot is Breather Resist and it’s an impressive one. Musically, Breather Resist is still just as chaotic, intricate and laden with ideas as the Acrobat, but Breather are darker, noisier and heavier overall — while the Acrobat toyed with their prey, leading them through a jungle gym of musical twists and turns, before making the kill, Breather just mauls and mauls and mauls. That’s Only In The Morning’s strength: it doesn’t fuck around. Just listen to "Just Do It,” "The Best Mistake” and "Pretty Like Cancer” and try to disagree. Sure it’s complex, challenging, intricate and discordant, but it’s heavy, throwing around Coalesce’s jarring sludgy hardcore with noise rock’s density and discord, and, obviously, the Acrobat’s inventiveness and charisma. It’s excellent, even with the CD being too short, barely 22 minutes. Forget about Casper Adams, you can’t stop Evan Patterson, not that you’d want to.
