- The Echo Show by Yeti Lane
1 review. Write a review for us »
Starting with bubbling analogue synths, clean guitar lines and Neu inspired motorik drums, immediately Frenchmen Yeti Lane have a sound that is recognisable but also hugely enjoyable proving once again that obvious influences can lead to something fresh and exciting. The blokes vocals are really lovely, just the right amount of echo on them whilst their songs drift on for longer than you might expect yet never become self indulgent. Second track 'The Echo Show' sounds exactly what you may think the new Twilight Sad sounds like if you'd read the reviews and not listened to it. Pounding drums, synths galore and a real energy that Weatherall obviously failed to pluck out of the Sad's (though I do strangely like that album, it doesn't have the insistent pop blast this one does). I do like the way these lot mix up synths and real drums never becoming too retro or too blatantly aiming for the charts (see Ladytron etc). It strikes a nice poise throughout and each song is really impressive in its own way, its superbly produced (by the guy who does M83 stuff amongst others) and they have a knack with a melody that sits well with the rhythmic nature of their sound. Comparisons are easy; Broadcast, Grandaddy, early M83, Neu, Can, Syd Barrett, but this is so much more than the sum of its parts. Impressive stuff.
