Powell follow up their well received debut 12" for Diagonal with 5 track EP 'Body Music'. The title track is an upbeat post punker with woody, slightly tribal percussion, vocal snippet and funky bass. Although composed electronically it's still very organic sounding. 'Search' is a slow motion creeper with restrained beats, fuzz and hiss which gently build leaving a huge sense of tension. It's pretty darn filthy sounding actually and the bass will reward when cranked up.
'Grand Street' is more akin to the material on the previous 'The Ongoing Significance Of Steel & Flesh' EP. With pounding primitive drum rhythms underpinning the odd bass twang and some blackened electronics. 'Have It' again has percussion as it's key element over which other sounds compliment each other. This works its magic with stuttering snares and slightly malfunctioning bassline.
Finally Nude is a pounding raw techno stomper with huge drums and super infectious rhythms all clanging like huge tree trunks being smashed together while a ripping synth buzzes away. A solid EP throughout and an excellent follow up which clearly demonstrates that Powell is carving out a sound all of their own despite some obvious influences. Recommended.
