I'm liking this shit. I think it might be my favourite SYR release actually. I think I got a little bit bored with the 'solid, dependable and consistent' thing with The Eternal; I guess I felt like it was more of the same thing they've been doing since about the turn of the century only less inspired than the likes of Murray Street, Sonic Nurse and Rather Ripped.

I'm liking this shit. I think it might be my favourite SYR release actually. I think I got a little bit bored with the 'solid, dependable and consistent' thing with The Eternal; I guess I felt like it was more of the same thing they've been doing since about the turn of the century only less inspired than the likes of Murray Street, Sonic Nurse and Rather Ripped. But this record's totally getting me excited for the next 'proper' album. Not that SYR releases tend to have much bearing on their more commercial endeavors but it more than shows that they can still bring the darkness, dissonance and atmosphere of their classic mid/late 80s style.. I mean stick some vocals (Kim being all breathy or Thurston being all slacker-y or Lee casually being totally mint) on top of some of these instrumental fuckers and they wouldn't sound that out of place on EVOL or Sister. Granted, it's not all that way - I mean, it is a soundtrack album and as such the sounds on it need to suit a variety of dramatic needs - and there are plenty of examples of their more starkly textural improv work (which I generally tend to think that they don't usually do massively well considering how amazing of a band they are otherwise) but even that stuff's way better than usual. Gotta go fives and hope this is the start of a new chapter for them!
