about

THE THOUSANDS.COM.AU
Jake Core is a poet and a guitarist in a band called Hot Palms. He also performs as Soda Eaves and has just dropped his debut album Like Drapes Either Side. It’s full of folk, lo-fi rock and dream pop and he's enlisted the help of Jordan Ireland (Stolen Violin, ex-the Middle East) and Sam Rowe (Dragging Pianos). To play this kind of music and then call one of your tracks 'On the Beach' takes a fair amount of confidence / large testicles but Jake is a guy who definitely knows what he’s doing.

4ZZZ FM AUSTRALIA
Soda Eaves is the solo work of Jack Core, a published poet and guitarist with the Melbourne psychedelic-drone band Hot Palms. Recorded in a shed in Thornberry, Like Drapes Either Side is a lo-fi, heartfelt masterpiece, with 8 tracks of reverb-soaked indie guitar pop, augmented by sparse synths, and snippets of recorded sound.
It’s a distinctly Australian release, with Core’s undisguised accent lending a sense of credibility to the album, written about feelings of isolation, and life in the suburbs. The first track, No one else, sets the mood for the rest of the release, with longing, yearning guitar riffs set above the sound of wet and heavy winds, evoking images of a tropical climate. This is followed by an acoustic song, Flowers of Evil, which begins with a short recording of a conversation. Around it, we hear the sounds of a natural environment: native birds chirping, and softly strummed acoustic guitar – signs of human colonization set amongst a natural landscape. A picture of life in suburban, or regional Australia.
