"One part Brian Eno; one part Jesus Lizard; one Dirty Three" (one sheet). Again, fairly accurate for this Philadelphia trio. But I'd maybe replace the Eno reference with early Confusion is Sex/Evol era noise of Sonic Youth. Moments of post-rock, tech rock, moody darkness a la Sunn((O))) in these all instrumental compositions. Some tracks long and run the gamut, but they segue nicely and really explore their sonic worlds, going from quiet to loud and back, straight 4/4 rhythmic to strange triplets, from dissonance to chromatic. Cool stuff.
1) one minute dark noise drone intro
2) heavy beat, discordant yet upbeat, dense playful and great instrumental, majorly slow breakdown
3) i see the Dirty Three comparisons now: dissonant yet chill slow, builds heavier though with electric guitar
4) chill manipulation of bell tones then plodding bass stuff, bordering on experimental
5) dark toned upbeat triplet feel with violin, really smacking of Dirty Three with brushed drums to boot, three minutes in the fucker explodes, then segues out long and noisey a la Confusion is Sex/Evol Sonic Youth
6) mathy non danceable rhythms, proggy
7) chill noise, droney, is this the "Eno" reference? i 'spose...
8) epic, long, beautiful early Sonic Youth'ish feedbacky noise jam preceeds an heavy bashout that picks up a real near-stoney down-tuned beat and feel
