    Hod and the Helpers, Split Screens $89pm showtimeSplit Screens:https://www.facebook.com/split screensmusicI started Split Screens as a solo project, to explore the tension between what we are and what we want to be, says Jesse Cafiero, the bands singer, songwriter and front man. In movies, a split screen lets you see something thats going on in two places at the same time, a look at a single reality from different perspectives. Theres something surreal about a split screen; a quality I strive to capture in my songwriting.Cafiero succeed in his goal with the Split Screens EP he released in 2012, a quiet excursion into a world steeped in sadness and introspection. With the exception of drummer Rory OConnor (Tycho, Com Truise) and the vibraphone of Geneva Harrison, Cafiero played all the instruments on the EP himself. To create the music on Before the Storm, he brought in members of his live band - Phil Pristia, guitar; Debbie Neigher, keys; Kyle Kelly Yahner, percussion - with O'Connor, Harrison and producer Jeremy Black (Apollo Sunshine) reprising the roles they played on the EP. It took a full year to make this album, from the first day of tracking to the last day of mixing, it gave us plenty of time and freedom to experiment with new instruments and colors throughout the recording.The music on Before the Storm has the same wistful quality that made the Split Screens EP so compelling, but its more upbeat, a breezy album that flows like a buoyant pop symphony. The sighing sustained notes of Cafieros lap steel and the expansive gospel-flavored keyboards of Stand Alone mimic the breathless, swooning feeling you get when youre falling in love. The impressionistic lyrics and serene vocals add to the songs inviting warmth. A punchy horn section and Rory OConners propulsive, multi-layered percussion add to the funky R&B feel of Home, a celebration of lifes simple pleasures.Native of small town Pine Plains, NY, Cafiero started Split Screens after relocating to San Francisco in 2010. Cafiero continued working as a freelance bassist, but his interest in psychedelic music, coupled with his discovery of the sonic possibilities of the lap steel guitar changed the course of his creative life. I became a songwriter, vocalist, guitarist and bandleader. Ive always written melodies, but didnt think about writing songs until I started working on my EP.The Split Screens EP was recorded with producer/engineer Jeremy Black whose use of analog tape delay added an expansive aura to musics poignant, heavily layered melancholy. Before the Storm shows Cafiero moving to a new level of melodic and lyrical sophistication. Id like to write fun songs with nonsensical lyrics, but its against my nature, he says. Im more interested in exploring and understanding the hidden undercurrents that flow through life and display who we really are.
