- Fall EP by The Oscillation
8/10 Mike Staff review, 01 December 2011
With this being one of them hand-stamped white label 12” jobbies I was totally expecting these guys to be some sort of dance act, but upon closer listening this is actually unquestionably a slab of rock, with motorik beats and some satisfyingly filthy bass tones. There's some wakka-wakka guitars in places that you'd think would throw it into the region of funk rock, but this is too dark and krauty for that. The propulsive scuzziness of it kind of brings to mind a less showy Poison Arrows (whose last album is well worth tracking down). After the opening couple of rock tracks, the third one, a dramatic reworking of Pink Floyd's 'On The Run', is much more synth-led, but still with pounding live drums pinning it all down. On the other side, at the other speed, we've got a remix of a song from their album called 'Fall', which is a snail's pace late night throbber with minimal and repetitive tendencies and lots of echo on the drums and a Berlin techno feel. This is a much more varied and rewarding disc than I was expecting. Good job, lads.
