OTHER INFO: Review by François Couture

Scott Smith, the one-man operation behind the moniker Lifesmyth, already had four home-brewed albums under his belt when Music for the Third Ear became his first official release. Concocted and privately released on CD-R in 2000, this album showcases Smith as a storyteller. Between "Approaching" and "Last Chance," the first and last tracks, he sketches the journey of a lifetime -- from birth to death -- and ties it with a cosmic/extraterrestrial theme that gives the album its psychedelic feel. The drums, alternately programmed or stiff, trap the music inside too cold a cage; it deserved to be warmer, looser at the ground level.

Keyboards, guitar (electric and acoustic), sitar, and mandolin form the main instrumentation, along with Smith's low, dreamy vocals. The odd dynamic shifts recall some of the artists revolving around the American underground avant psych-folk scene (Tower Recordings, Sunburned Hand of the Man), although Lifesmyth's songs are always more defined and somehow straightforward. It is their grouping into what can only be called a concept album that produces such a strange, destabilizing atmosphere. The D.I.Y. production means that most listeners will find half of the tracks endearing and the other half annoying, but no two persons will separate them the same way or for the same reasons. Composition-wise, Music for the Third Ear is an intriguing proposal. If Smith can find a few good, like minded musicians to straighten up the performance, he'll become an addictive fellow.
