"Nautilus is the solo project of Heidi Diehl of Vanishing Voice/Time Life, long-time BR transatlantic e-mail buddy who we finally got to meet just over a year ago on the very brief Vanishing Voice tour. Since then, she has begun recording solo material under this alias, and has self-released one CD-R which blew our minds, and likewise blew local long-time BR friend Ben Nash's cranium apart. The Nautilus side opens with 'Still Rings,' a far-out trip of weirdo outsider dripping mind-fuzz, like some kind of spatial insect gathering. 'Tallahasse Woman' rings more bells with the sound of Vanishing Voice and Heidi's psychedelic string playing, and subtle vocals buried below it. 'Jeans Theme' is another sweet track of tranced-out guitar with approaching percussion and waves of vocal drones. Ben Nash holds his side with two nearly 8-minute tracks, opener 'Plymouth Bredren Blues' has definitely got the blues -- as mentioned in the title, there's some serious woe in the wah right here, and some almost Paris, Texas moments. 'Interloper/Latch' also starts off pretty bluesy, but halfway through goes to a speaker-shredding guitar shaker, with some seriously serious riffs, that are almost breaking up as they begin, and then reverting back to the blues mediation of the beginning of the track. A great release, in an edition of 300 copies."
