Since the 2004 release of their first LP, End Note (Neurot Recordings), Enablers have established a new direction in spoken word music. The prose and poetry of Pete Simonelli is intricately woven into the dynamic interplay of guitarists Joe Goldring and Kevin Thomson, and punctuated by the compulsive and precise drumming of Doug Scharin.
Musically, the compositions range from melodic minimalism to heavy, rhythmically challenging thickets of sound. Following End Note came Output Negative Space (Neurot Recordings) and Tundra (Exile on Mainstream) as well as two EP’s featuring extended improvisations (The Achievement on Awesome Vistas and Now You Can Answer My Prayers on Lancashire and Somerset).
With an almost entirely DIY approach to touring and intense live performances, Enablers continually reach a growing number of fans in the underground of the European continent and the UK. Their new release, Blown Realms and Stalled Explosions (Exile On Mainstream + Lancashire and Somerset Dance Society), finds Enablers evolving even more. The record's textural and evocative sound realises a new direction while maintaining the distinct elements of musicianship and imagination that made the previous releases so engaging.
