Album Review
Red West
Reviewed 2010-05-04 
Interesting collection of music from Chicago & Italian label with similar math rock & prog sensibilities. Hadn’t heard of any of the bands but now I think these are labels to watch. Everything on this sampler is decent.

1. dry rock, electric guitar & M vocal. I love the guitar sound. Song changes often, best portion is discordant, jangly, reminiscent of early 90’s indie rock
2. Math rock instrumental, fast and intricate
3.mid-heavy rock instrumental, lots of tempo/time changes
4.mid-fast prog with a nod to metal. Wacky middle section. Synth & guitar instrumental
5.It’s like indie rock with odd constantly changing tempo. Math bridge. Interesting listening. M vocal self-hamonies
6.High pitched guitar harmonics layer into a rough drone, bass barks over it, then come the heavy drums. Don Cab style math instr, ends with a good pounding.
7.3/4, 5/4 time math rock, punky emo. M vocals too angsty for me
8.Mellow bedroom hometape rap
9.fast moving, M vocals from the 70s. Toe-tapping minor key rock on the edge of psych
10.Mellow clean guitar & drumkit, angry M vocal
11.Very quiet intro of M harmonies and tapping, then caveman math rock, emo lyrcs
12.angry live intro, loud/quiet/loud, bits of rubber-band guitar. Experimental, pulls together
13.Odd poetry over military tinkling
14.HC vocals, metal guitars. “I can feel the fire, the fire of 1000 hells”
15.buzzy bassy /warbly tweeting synth and prog arpeggios on the guitar, with chord bursts. Genesis would be proud. Instrumental.
16.abstract rhythmic scratchings, 2nd half has high-pitched feedback whine/drone
