Album Review
Reviewed 2004-03-23
Background music to the future. Post-electro-rock Mogwai-style instrumental EP. Usually loud, dominant synths, electric guitars, rock-style drums. These are not pop songs! Each track is an extended instrumental rock ballad, touring different rhythms, sounds, and melodies. Did I say Post Rock already? Play tracks 2,4 late at night, track 1 when you wish to wake up, track 3 when you’re playing spoken word that needs backing.
1. Mid tempo, guitar, keyboard riffs, builds up a rocking crescendo.
2. Slow/mid tempo, beautiful keyboard riff and synths driving the track. Beautiful stuff! This is almost as sweet as Air.
3. Extended (11:47!) track. Start high tempo, slows down into repeated guitar riff, crescendo, slows down again when keyboard takes over… and so on, and so forth.
4. A more artsy-noisy remix of the opening track, with loops and drum machines, doesn’t build up.
