V/A -- Rampage Recordings Comp.

Spazzy Arty Math Rock. Comp of bands off of Chicago art rock / noisy experimental label that vary between the piercingly abrasive noisey tracks, straight art-math, and chill, well-made post-rock. I like the tracks by “French Band,” which sounds like Ent, and also “Bird Names,” which pulls off the many-member experimental-somethingorother well. FCCs: #18, 19. Picks: 22, 25, 26, 10, 12, 4, 5, 9, 13, 23

1. Mathy rock with art-rock vocals and heavy guitars. [2:34]

*2. Shrill & howling harpy guitar and female vocals. [0:55]

3. Riot girl-y arty vocals with angular guitars. [0:49]

**4. Very nice insistent instrumental track with guitar/drum/bass. [2:28]

**5. Another great instrumental, awesome loud/quiet arcs and guitar. [5:00]

6. More noisy howling, like someone is definitely getting murdered. [1:02]

7. Speaky-screamy female vocals with distorted noise and loud drums. [1:08]

8. Shouting distorted female vocals and loud rock. Erase Errata-y. [1:01]

**9. Dancy Keyboard noise-pop-rock, the Rapture as a Load band. [1:55]

**10. Cricket-screech noise alt-rock with relatively straight-sung male art vocals. Everyone joins in for the sing-songy chorus. [4:24]

11. Horn-led noisy instruments, with experimental indie-folk type vocals. [2:58]

**12. Acoustic guitar plucking moves into fun fuzzy guitar with melodic guitar line and keyboard and rounds of male and female vocals. [4:00]

**13. Heavily distorted electoclashy noise & vocals. [1:44]

14. Art keyboard and vocals. Not that amazing. [2:41]

15. Same band as last track and similarly unimpressive art-alt-rock. [2:32]

16. Lo-fi multi-instrument all-at-once unparseable sludge of sound. [3:58]

17. Loud Strings + Drum spazzy instrumental with 30 second fake ending. [2:28]

18. Dance-noise with distorted guitar and keyboard sounds and strained male vocals. [3:04] FCC Unclean

19. Same band as #18, abrasive yet danceable. [3:28] FCC Unclean

20. Screamy HxC/noise vocals. [0:40]

21. More high-pitched shrill howly screamy female vocals. [0:40]

***22. What-the-fuck- film/big band intro leads into bizarre and delightful bugga-bugga grunting noise reminiscent of the craziness of Hanatarash, juxtaposed with skit-skat and keyboard. [1:38]

**23. Some outer space electroclash and spazzy monster vocals. [1:46]

24. Very abrasive industrial white noise and screaming a la Bastard Noise. [0:44]

***25. Really good melodic acapella singing -- lead sounds like more controlled Antony and the Johnsons high sounds, with multiple harmony parts. Like a beautiful art school lullaby. [2:51]

***26. Piano-lesson keyboard with poorly recorded, talent show female vocals with heavy echo, and some creepy death-metal growl whispers. Very unsettling. [2:05]
