As if playing bass in the bands The Faint and Beep Beep wasn't enough, Joel Peterson also manages to find time to record and release solo albums under the moniker Broken Spindles. Written during tours with both bands, Inside/Absent is somewhat of a departure for Joel. Some songs are more poppy than one would expect. And yet, overall, like previous releases this album is odd and unpredictable. Peterson recorded the album entirely on his own during March and April 2005. Thus, these songs have the feel of an artist working alone in isolation. Inside/Absent is a purely artistic endeavor in which Peterson explores his own mind and, in the process, causes others to think and explore. Thought provoking tracks include "Inward," "This Is An Introduction," "Birthday," and "Painted Boy Face." Odd, unusual, and peculiar. (Rating: 5)
