Album Review
Reviewed 2007-03-18
Pretty shoegaze dance rock, ethereal and insistent... with a good dose of Neu!/Michael Rother/Harmonia pretty-driving krautrock feel. Multi-tracked, reverby male vocals, echoey guitar, insistent drums, some synth color. Debut EP from this Philadelphia quartet (stay tuned for the debut LP). Play with The Pale Saints, The Swirlies, Slowdive, Mean Red Spiders, The Church, The Sea And Cake, The High Violets, Pacific UV, The Black Neon, Neu!, Stereolab, Pinback, The Rum Diary. FCC clean. Start with 4, 6.

1. Mid-fast, driving... à la Mates Of State but with ethereal vocals.
2. Mid-tempo, insistent yet hypnotic. High-register male vocals. Starts with a drum figure.Ends cold followed by several seconds of silence.
3. Ambient, suspended-feel instrumental. No percussion. Starts very quietly, stays pretty quiet, and fades away.
==> 4. A bit of a Harmonia krautrock feel, with ethereal shoegaze vocals. Starts with monotone guitar chord; slow fade.
5. Reminiscent of Sea And Cake. Swaying feel with keyboard theme.
==> 6. Mid-slow and hypnotic, like Slowdive on Pygmalion... and almost like Broadcast. Deep percussion, acoustic guitar, synth colorings, and sleepy vocals. Starts with blips & noises. Disintegrates & fades.
