7/10 Richard Customer review, 29th March 2017
Labradford's debut 1994 release 'Prazision' is probably their least satisfying record, but is still very much worth checking out if you are serious about your post-rock. Opener 'Listening in Depth' is pretty dark with its deep drone and scratchy rhythm. It recalls the stunning Virgin compilation Ambient 4: Isolationism, which was so groundbreaking at the time.
Other tracks also recall artists like Flying Saucer Attack and Rothko, with a emphasis on buried vocals and pulsating bass lines.
Stylistically it's a bit all over the place, but it still sounds fresh 23 years on, and was a real marker for where their career was heading, highlighted by one of the first post-rock albums to combine drone with neo-classical elements in the majestic 'Mi Media Naranja'.
I really love Labradford and so should you.
