Album Review
Reviewed 2009-01-18
Synthy band from Seattle. 10 (nearly) wordless tracks. There are some misses, but the overall sound is pretty solid. I had to be brutally honest about a few fuck ups though... Lots of sounds that make me think of some recent a-file visitors - Apparatus (SubtractiveLAD), Beatbox (Glass Candy), maybe even Crime in Choir sometimes. Several of these tracks sound like that song in The Matrix with the beat and the piano and the violin. Try *1, 2, 8, 10 for shows. Maybe some of the rest - give them a listen and tell me if I'm just trippin. FCC Clean.

*1. Fun interplay between harsher noises/industrial beat and flowing ambient sounds.
2. Lower register ambience, driving beat
3. Proggy, sorta awkward fast drums come in. Jesus Christ Superstar?
4. Coming down from e in a club at 4am. (Why am I still here?) Doesn't that synth about 30 seconds in sound flat the whole time? Is it interesting against the ambient chimes in the background? Just annoying? Hmm..
5. Mellower beat, pretty synths, violin, doesn't really go anywhere
6. Starts with sort of a grime beat 20 seconds in. Then 'oops my synth farted and I don't have any more studio time' at 1:20. Mellows out.
7. Wow, some awkward moments that I have to point out - bass synth rhythm 0:35-0:40, piano mixing at 2:38, synth rhythm 3:18-3:37! Otherwise it sounds nice though...
8. Skipping beat, funny samples from 'A Dirty Shame' (John Waters): "I was not drunk! I was on pills!". Then racing beat, ambient noises, altered harpsichord.
9. Pretty guitar, nice. Then faster drums, ok. Then random synths at about 1:40 - huh? Ambient and chill for last 2 1/2 minutes.
10. Piano, punchy drums, rising synth whines slowly come in. Lush strings later. Then WHOA - the beginning of track 7 of the most recent Gang Gang Dance coming out of the fog with about 1:00 left. Same sample I guess. Song transition opportunity!
