Walter TV: Carpe Diem
What is there to be said that hasn't already been said about the old Walter TV band? Our main men in the group (Joe McMurray, Simon Ankenman, Pierce McGarry) are either aged 30 or close to. They do their best to make music that is meaningful, interesting, andâ€¦danceable? Emotionally razed these bad boys are pumping out of the ashes, instruments in hand.With their new release, Carpe Diem, Walter TV has taken their version of lo-fi recording to a near professional level (or at least attempted to). The album deals with all the classic tropes that no person can seem to escape or avoid (except the enlightened few) including, suffering, loss, death, love, chaos, inevitability, declining conditions of earth, self inflicted spiritual pain, heart attacks, forfeiture of morals, yearning, attempts at doing the right thing, karma (police), moments of clarity, depression, introversion/extroversion, the singularity, technological advancements, neglect, insults of opulence, lack of community and looking out for your fellow people, being paranoidâ€¦you get the point!
