Album Review
Ragnar of Ravensfjord
Reviewed 2006-04-11
An ex-member of Dazzling Killmen member doing some rockin’ Midwestern indie, guitar heavy stuff. In the realms of: The Big Boys, Fourth Rotor, Minutemen, late-era NoMeansNo. Really GREAT vocals & solid guitar tone ALL the way through.
((((1)))) Uppity, slightly garage-y, strong Big Boys/Mintuemen influence.
((((2)))) Lots of interesting changes. Really easy to follow & catchy vocals punctuated by bombastic to slinky chords.
((((3)))) Slow, winding to a mid-paced stroller. Really pleasing chords once again.
((((4)))) Strummy, sunny day kinda like a mellow Husker Du by way of Television or Mission Of Burma?
(((((5))))) Jagged yet rollin’ feeling, zig-zagging chords.
(((((6))))) Wide-open sounding, big sky, steady indie rock – emphasis on the ROCK!
((((7)))) Works around slow but medium loud, strummed guitar & very present rumbly bass.
(((8))) Slowed down, simple, twangy guitar.
((((9)))) Post-punky & agitated, noodly, off-kilter & outta balance in the best way – tho’.
((((10)))) Minneapolis circa late 80’s-early 90’s. Occasionally lunging loudness vs. mellow but fast-ish chords.
