Sometimes it makes me wonder how Americans can make such bleak music. What with their nice food, delicious beer, feel good TV adverts and prozac piped into the water they are generally quite a happy bunch.
Eraas, however, are a Brooklyn, NY duo who have made the kind of grimy, dark album which usually emerges from some dark housing complex in inner London. It's full of the kind of spectral atmospheres specialised in by the Tri-Angle label with less witch-house vibe and more of a swirling gothy early 80s back street bleakness. Certain tracks recall the kind of early 80s, early hours melancholy of the likes of Holy Other, the band inhabiting a shadowy world of frail hip hop beats, spindly atmospheres and ghostly disembodied voices. ‘Old Magic’ veers into Portishead like broken beats and anguished vocals, and is quietly terrifying. Don’t play when alone in the house at night.
