GREAT! From Bloomington, Indiana, Turn Pale bring us what they call death disco, a formula which consists of great Nick Cave–like screechy whiny ranting vocals on top of dancy post-punk grooves. Yes, like the Rapture mixed in with heroin induced pre-goth despair. While some may hate the rave concerning the aforementioned band, Turn Pale do a good job of deferring the comparison because their vocalist invokes a darker, more sinister (less groupie friendly) sound. Think also of Gang of Four. 4, 5, 8, 2, 11, 7.|
1. slow, sinister bassline. builds darker. moody, despairing vocals.
2. midtempo, catchy, gets dancy. start-stop bass+drums w/ angry vocals and distorted guitar. pretty good, like the rapture.
3. catchy dancy. funky bassline, gang of four-ish guitar riff.
4. catchy but dark. tom-y drums. sustained screech vocals. great!
5. slow mean groove. excellent, very nick cave, dark endless pit feel.
6. upbeat, straightforward, striving for an old post-punk sound. decent
7. great relentless hard pulse, screaming vocals. really great, but then breakdown at end doesn’t fulfill the potential and the build-up.
8. very post-punk derivation but very catchy and minimal. great!
9. slow dancy and catchy, a lot like the rapture etc, maybe darker
10. slow ¾ groove w/ rambling half spoken (very nick cave) vocals
11. slow grating pre-goth groove. dark and exhausting. Great!
