Mr. Meeble
Never Trust the Chinese
(absolute motion)

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. … That just about sums up monsieur Meeble’s debut effort, Never Trust the Chinese. At once deliciously vintage and über-futuristic, Mr. Meeble conjures up the comforting subconscious sounds of ’70s-era one-hit wonders mashed within songs destined for next millennium’s Cyborg Hot 100. Born from the ashes of longtime Valley alternative/electronic outfit Zeta, Mr. Meeble is the brainchild of Devin Fleenor, Michael Plaster (Soul Whirling Somewhere) and Blain Klitzke. Drawing from a Grand Canyon-esque’s landscape worth of sounds, influences and ideas, Mr. Meeble’s finest moments include: “Fine,” an infectious groove layered deep within a collective of Air-inspired androgynous vocal tracks; “Raindrops,” true Chicken Soup for the Soul brotha in you; the cathartic wailing of “A Ton of Bricks,” reminiscent of Trent Reznor’s salad days on TVT; and “Forget This Ever Happened,” a must-be-heard track for any Soul Whirling Somewhere fan. And while the songs run the gamut of genres, their exquisite sonic qualities, infectious melodies and Richard D. James-influenced break-beats tie them together seamlessly – not unlike This Mortal Coil’s finest works. Modern, filmy and altogether otherworldly, Mr. Meeble’s debut album has drawn a fresh and distinct sound from the fractured remains of some of our lifetime’s most outstanding musical efforts. A New Hope indeed. JASON FARRELL
