Low-end, heavy rock with an interesting sound that its both modern and remicent of the early 90’s bands such as Jesus Lizard, Chokebore, Shellac & Quicksand. In all a pretty good release even though it’s not always “on” 100% of the time. |
(((((1))))) Introspective, bass & long vocal intro, later a nice slow percussive structure with some simple trudging riffs.
((((((2))))) Wild guitar sound and layered vocals. Great mix of stop/starts ‘ala Quicksand & Jesus Lizard.
(((3))) Strange guitar harmonics but this gets bogged down in ‘weird tempo for the sake of being weird’.
((((4)))) Slow, dominate 1-2 chord & vocal sections ‘ala Shellac.
((((5)))) Huge low end, jud-judding along nice, very rawkin’. Ends with a crowd talking.
(((6))) more of the crowd talking then a long bassy, vocal-centered thing with a bits of guitar. The repated “ch-ch-ch-check out” parts get minus points.
(((7))) Open tuned guitars, slow build up, not bad but sounds like too many fair-to-middling acts from the 90s
(((8))) Bursting out, post-hardcore, fastish AmRep label style stuff but that excessive slide and cowbell should go.
(((9))) Rhythmic, doot-doot-ing all over. So-so vocals.
(((10))) Good drumming, feedback-laden guitars, recorded live, but lacks direction.
(((11))) Some interesting vocals and guitars but they’re two completely opposed elements that don’t combine for a solid whole.
