Album Review
Elias (Dr Furious)
Reviewed 2007-01-21
Edgy and repetitive post-punky garage from Thessaloniki, Greece. Rhys Chatham and Swell Maps (angular/noisy guitar jam chaos) meet the Fall (long-drawn repetitive; rough and dry bass lines) only with the psychedelic prettiness of Love. One of the best bands that the Greek scene has churned up in nearly two decades now! Being the opening act for the Fall and Telescopes, Dread Astaire channel fuzzed up and noisy grooves founded on repetition but spiced up with unpredictable guitar progressions and turns. Passionate English-speaking vocals add some realism in their Greek accents. All done with infectiously addictive rhythms and melodies. Amazing shit folks! It will rock your brains out.
Play: 3, 2, 4
1: Fuzzy bass creates heavy and rough groove. FCCs.
2: Great guitar counterpoints and rhythmic changes in the breakdown. I believe that’s called “angular”.
3: Signature heavy bass grooves are driving. A hypnotic med tempo with guitar angularity rocking out!
4: Happy go lucky; catchy guitar/bass groove. Rocks out and then breaks into sweet and jazzy psychedelic guitar phrase that reminds me of Love. Comes back to the rock! Ends with sampled voices.
