it’s been said that there is a fine line between genious and insanity. Wait, rewind that. Perhaps I should start with a classic Hunter S. Thompson quote taken out of context. “The Edge... there is no honest way to explain it because the only people who really know where it is are the ones who have gone over.” I’m pretty sure that the man behind Under Water Dream Machine, Bret Vovk, has gone well past the edge in a good way. His music is a conglomerate of sounds that range from The Flaming Lips, Bright Eyes and a general cacophony that works oh-so-well together. I think he might just be my favorite local lyricist as well. Vovk tackles digital to acoustic and everything in between, even taking time to punch a few piano keys along the way. At the very least, you will be entertained and, perhaps, taken over that edge.
