Album Review
HYPRK
Reviewed 2010-08-11 
The very solid debut release from Dignan Porch, a lo-fi 4-piece outfit out of London. All songs were recorded for the cheap (literally out of their bedrooms), but are strung together in intricate and creative ways. All tunes are lo-fi and a spot hissy, but with chipper, clear instrumentation and a deliberate attention to melody and balance. (All songs are short, so keep an eye out on the time).

NO FCC VIOLATIONS  

1. Strummy acoustic guitar with eerie electronic warbling. Heavily distorted male vocals.
2. Hissy lo-fi with echoed vocals and high-pitched guitar strumming.
*3. Slow-tempo rocker with a simple, straight-forward structure of layered electric guitar, thudding percussion and forced, distorted vocals.
*4. A slow, epic buildup transitions into a downtempo ballad with distorted extra-terrestrial lyrics and reverberating guitarwork. U2 meets the Knife.
5. Mid-tempo rocker with loud percussion, lots of guitar pedals and repetitive lyrics.
*6. Washes of My Bloody Valentine guitar and sneering lyrics.
7. Slow, rambling acoustic with heavy-hitting drums.
8. 28 seconds of dreamy crooning with muted amplifier feedback.
*9. A high-energy guitar intro leads into a nasally-sung lo-fi rocker.
*10. Loud full, wall-of sound approach with tons of strummy guitars, echoing drums, and squealing waves of high-pitched guitar in the background.
*11. Sad, but in a very sweet, melodic way. Open and vulnerable with sweet acoustic plucking. The last minute or so is instrumental: intertwined strumming guitars of differing textures—one very blunt and straightforward and the other rather submissive and shy.
12. A lo-fi take on the classic romance impulse “let’s run away together and forget the world.”
*13. Lots of ethereal effects and weird jangling sounds. Smooth bedtimestory vocals.
