Made up of a rotating cast of six musicians, Nashville, TN’s Character intricately weave a number of different instruments and ideas to create the pastoral beauty of We Also Create False Promises. Two years in the making, the album is instrumental rock that takes cues from experimental, jazz and ambient music, not to mention rock sub-genres like shoegaze, drone and math rock. Another important dimension of the sound was created by producer and Fictitious Records co-owner Roger Moutenot, who has also previously engineered/produced for the likes of Yo La Tengo, Sleater-Kinney, Lou Reed, Josh Rouse and Beulah. The final result is 11 songs of intricate yet raw energy that relies on the strategic placement of the many different dynamic melodies; a fine release. Mpardaiolo
