8/10 Phil Staff review, 05 May 2011
Eric Quach records under a number of different monikers but he's possibly more famous for Thisquietarmy (now known as TQA for review purposes because my fingers are tired). His music tends to be quite varied as well (the big multi headed beast he is) as he treads from genre to genre like a tip-toeing Canadian doom pixie. This album is kinda doomy with a poppy element. It's completely draped in sludge and fuzz but beneath the walls of filth are melodies crawling into your ears. Mike here said it reminded him a wee bit of Fuck Buttons but without the techno beats. Dark shimmerry drone stuff with a hint of evil but you can always see the light at the end of the tunnel. It's important to be able to see the light at the end of the tunnel cos if you don't then you don't know where it ends and if you don't know where it ends then that's nothing but worrying. I find it's best to eliminate as much worry from life as possible. Deffo worth spending time with this album though as it's intense powerful stuff!
