Reviews

8/10 Staff review, 07 June 2013

Arriving at 2.30 on a Friday afternoon, this EP nearly didn’t get reviewed at all but Phil insisted it was one we should listen to so here goes. On Rare Earth there’s a patient krauty beat’n’drone situation which reminds me of Beak> and chugging glacial guitars with nonchalant almost Kim Gordon-esque vocal delivery, making for a track which coldly builds tension in an effective modern way while still nodding back at past giants like Joy Division and SY.

The glassy skittering walls of guitar they conjure up, particularly on A-side ‘Rare Earth Materia’, bring to mind late ‘70s/early ‘80s NY types like Rhys Chatham and Theoretical Girls so I’m gratified to read in the press release that Chatham (in whose guitar orchestra I was recently lucky enough to play) and Branca are influences ‘cause it means they’re getting what they’re going for. Both sides end on a locked groove. This is kind of a goth/post-punk take on that, I guess. If you’re into the likes of The KVB or GHXST you should definitely have a listen.
