London based 'bliss-rockers' Kontakte have a newie out this week, a three track ltd (100 copies) CD on Drifting Falling recordings. Now, I'm not familiar with their output so you'll have to excuse any ignorance on my part. I expected something more in the Drifting Falling shoe-gazy vein but this has more in common with the epic post rock shenanigans of 65 Days of Static or perhaps Vessels. On 'Superbug', Kontakte basically mix epic reverberant guitar tones with industrial-style beat programming. It's very cinematic and bold with elements of metal giving it that final 'credits to a Blade movie' feel. 'The Light Shining From A Window Behind Us' works it's magic around an emotive piece of solo piano before making way for final track 'Flight Paths', a flight of electronic fantasy that touches on the 80's yacht rock sound with it's soft synths and super-smooth production. It's the winner of the 'tune of the EP' award.
2/10 Rex Monday Customer review,
Derivative to the end. How many more post-rock by numbers bands do we really need?Quiet quiet quiet quiet LOUD repeat to fade.Pointless.
