Album Review
Adam Pearson
Reviewed 2012-11-19
Freaky, tribal, weirdo industrial/no-wave experimental percussive indie rock. Noisy quartet who uses sampling, electronics, and lots of chanting to create the fractured, driving, eerie feel. Sounds like breaking glass, refrigerator disco, taking drugs in a factory. Who needs melodies, anyway? Also see This Heat, Liars, Cop Shoot Cop, Hume.

*1. Messed up electronic industrial beat and polyrhythm noisy drive, squargly sirens and scratchy distorted textures. I wish they would play this in dance clubs. (7:55)
2. Drawling non-singer vocals, soft gongs, harsh guitar scraping, sharding chords. It’s droney, has a slow tempo and uses a lot of blaring feedback. (10:48)
*3. Garagey off-kilter ugly swagger with sirens and an almost dubby feel. (2:35)
4. Indecipherable warped computer voice sample. (1:00)
*5. Heavy fuzz tom tribal stomp with snarling vocals that remind me of Slint in the best way. Dark and nasty with some harsh distortion/tones. (8:04)
6. Sparse twiddling, minimal creepiness, slowed industrial jaunt. (7:44)
