Ulan Bator "Ego: Echo" [label: Young God Records]

Discordant post-rock of sorts from France. Varied styles - you should give this a listen before you form an expectation. Often low key and brooding, though there are lively moments. Great clashing electric guitar ala Sonic Youth. Sounds like a jam band at times, with curling basslines and jazzy drums. -nari

1. pretty ambling instrumental - piano, drums, gentle electric guit, soft vocals
2. starts with declamatory verbal assault, slides into hushed crawling bass & creepy guitar interruptions
3. repeated jam-style theme; chanting vocals enter @ 2:00; develops
4. hollow sound collage; @ 3:00 funky drums & bass; more layers emerge - slow, murky build; by 10:00 full on rockage; @ 14:20 unfortunate 2 min. vocals
5. standard indie rock; shuffly drums, breathy vocals
6. pretty cool modern-sounding duet of detuned pianos
7. urgent, deeply bitter rock
8. definitely has a beat goin on; dark groovy rock jam; cool space drone last 2 minutes
9. apocalyptic sound collage abruptly becomes quiet, morose lullaby
