Shooting Spires is the solo debut by BJ Warsaw of art-rock trio Parts & Labor and predictably it sounds like a Parts & Labor album minus the other two guys. But zooming in on Warsaw's naked compositions is illuminating: A consummate bedroom production, the record fizzes and shivers with atmospheric pop that theorizes a lo-fi version of TV On The Radio with hints of Neutral Milk Hotel and Guided by Voices. »Alive And Well« is the album's zenith and a song that's suspended so precisely between Brian Eno, Robert Pollard, and Jeff Mangum that it rises to the level of all three.
