Album Review
Reviewed 2003-10-14
This is the third album from these original New York post-rock icons who have worked with such bands as Stereolab and Tortoise. Although it results in being all over the place stylistically, this album does a great job of keeping the flow going, never settling on one catchy formula but instead taking risks and occasionally disagreeing with your taste. Very post-rock krautrock funk jam. Though I have a huge problem with “jammy” sounding bands, my tolerance for their playful adventures is high. Think also of Neu, Ganger, or Dianogah. 1, 2, 5, 10, 11, 13.

1. awesome, energetic sinister groove. pretty, then rockin’.
2. slow, kickass funky bass+drum rhythm.
3. organ over weird detuned synth krautrock jam. tortoise esp. at end.
4. dancy synth bassline, then 70s referential post-rocky jam
5. slow hard catchy groove. pretty, then breaks out loud at end.
6. mellow pretty bass guitar major 3rds solo w/ some synth
7. guitar-driven jam session, playful and upbeat.
8. with banjo. Alternates between hiphop funk beat and country
9. pretty guitar riffs and buzzy synth. very post-rock jam.
10. catchy bass guitar rhythm driven groove. like ganger/dianogah.
11. upbeat happy kraut rock groove with neat simple guitar riff.
12. un-ending funk groove jam. switches completely midway.
13. sad guitars, arpeggiated, melodic. very pretty.
