Mixing drone, shoegaze and psych rock into the same room like distant cousins awkwardly making conversation on the Christmas holidays, Implodes make a strange cacophony of loud noises - reverberating, sustaining and compelling, Reverser offers up a different kind of darkness to the psych rock universe.
8/10 Clinton Staff review, 27 May 2015
Let’s have a big slice of monolithic post rock shall we? ‘Out of Reach’ the first track on this EP from the outfit featuring kosmische guy Ken Camden is the sort of slab of grey textural stuff that could have just as easily come off of Godspeed’s debut as off La Bradford’s mid ‘90’s atmosphere-drenched records. ‘Lazy Skull’ is reverb slathered yet veers a little too easily into distorted post rock cliche for my liking, it’s certainly powerful but lacks any kind of dynamism just throwing sounds on top of each other until it all becomes a distorted mess.
‘Don’t Leave the House’ scales back the noise and adds vocals - it’s slightly disjointed and the wandering guitar gets on your wick but something that is half Swans, half Red House Painters won’t be told to get off my stereo. The closing title track as beautifully droney atmospheres and Expo 70 like guitar figures drifting into the mix. I like this but I like it better when they do less.
