- On Triple Beams by Tyvek
1 review. Write a review for us »
Tyvek’s last album proper, ‘Nothing Fits’ was my introduction to the band, a sloppy, snotty blast of obnoxious garage punk delivered at breakneck speed, it was a welcome change from all the perfectly laid-out ‘60s-worshipping garage psych which is gushing out of the USA nowadays, carving something more visceral and confrontational from the familiar gnarled, fuzzy tones of the “thinking man’s punk band”, who have previously had releases on In The Red, Night People, M’Lady’s, Siltbreeze, Les Disques Steak and even Third Man!
Fast forward a couple of years and they’re back with ‘On Triple Beams’, produced by Fred Thomas and with a bit less of the fire and spunk which made the previous LP such messy fun. Never fear, though, because they’ve still crafted some great rhythmic post-punky garage with more of a focus on clever lyrical diatribes and repetitive minimal riffs. It’s reminding me of the Intelligence’s more rough-around-the-edges stuff before they started down a poppier route (with great success).There’s something almost Les Savy Fav-esque about some of the songs, too, particularly ‘Wayne County Roads’, but first album Les Savy Fav before the Seth’s delay pedal took over. I think it’s basically just that they’re wordy, slightly wonky bursts of deceptively anarchic sophisto-punk. Rad.
