Space Rock for a New Decade

After seeing them just this weekend open for Pissed Jeans and Mudhoney, little did I expect them to wow me as they had. With a solid forty-five minute set that seemed to blaze through with ferocity and speed, they made me forget what time was and let my ears be graced with sonic joy. Following the show, I got to meet the band and buy their albums (they also signed the setlist of their's I snagged). This is by far not for the faint of heart. This progressive rock is clouded with noise, raging theramin's, subtle but strong synthesizers, and scifi overtures. More subtle than their past releases (especially Glitter Glamour Atrocity), their two epic twelve-to-thirteen minute tracks are excellent works and serve as major highlights of the album. 'Three Quarters' remains my favorite of the album - a gritty but hypnotic song that blends the spacey nature of seventies prog-rock with noise aesthetics of the No Wave scene. Overall, this album is one of the best of the year in my humble opinion as there have been few times where the first opening act of a show really steals me away.
