Album Review
Ragnar of Ravensfjord
Reviewed 2009-09-18
Spastic, energetic post-punk yet punky trio with female and male vocals. Great production and balance between all instruments. Sounds like they would be good live, too. Comparable to God Is My Co-Pilot, a straight ahead Sonic Youth (mostly in the vocals), and probably a bunch of “now wave” stuff from 90’s Chicago

(((1))) Hard sluggin’ bass and drums, dual vocals that emphasize each word.
((((2)))) Fast, punky post-punk, wild tempo shifts and stop/starts. Only downside is that it sound like 2 different songs when the girl starts singing.
((((3)))) Bassy, hard hittin’ laden punk with a bit of guitar scree.
((((4)))) More bass and drums with distant nearly spoken vocals. Weird tempo but enjoyable mostly.
(((5))) Barrage of drums and bass with random flurries of guitar.
(((6))) Thudding bass & cymbal-y drums. Reminds me of early Sonic Youth crossed with Bikini Kill. The title is better than the song, though.
((7)) More bass & drums, also very focused on the dual vocals. Alll of which are way too disjointed to make a good song.
