America is at war and most every band is just thumping along in some blind-eyed stupor, poutin’ out some goth-disco love-to-love-ya-baby slime, inoculating us, massaging with entertainment. Erase Errata’s new album, their third, Night Life, is a look at American life with the fluorescents on. Singer/guitarist Jenny Hoyston serves up narratives that examine realities no one wants to ...

3.0 out of 5 stars same old same old 25 Nov 2003
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
this is disappointing. i could be being unfair, in itself it's not a poor album, jumpy, rhythmic, and a little bit spikey. the trouble is that the first album, other animals, is brilliant, creative, never dull, and full of potential, and this is the same album with better production values (all good so far, the first was pretty scratchy) and with more focus on the catchy and dancy bits (should be good also, right?) but the let down is just that. why make another album? i could always just play the first one twice, (or one and a half times, since at 27 minutes long this barely scrapes beyond EP length) and why cut out the less rythmic bits? and why play the same riff a million times? this is so cold and frankly formulaic, no wit, no surprises, wearing after about 5 tracks. man it gets me down!
i guess we're always judged by our past. it makes it hard to be objective about the things that matter. if you're afraid of edgy then buy this. if you've got patience and get bored of the sameold then other animals is your bag.

5.0 out of 5 stars Even Better than the First Album 22 Feb 2006
By Tom Birkenstock - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
It's about time bands start getting some influence from no-wave. Now that new-wave is making a bit of a comeback with the whole 80's revival of the past few years, it's about time no-wave reared its deformed head. In actuality Erase Errata are far more approachable than many of these early no-wavers, but don't hold that against them, they'll still try and punish you with their sounds. Piercing guitar notes over swirling bass and drums, these girls make you work to get their music. You can tell that these four girls from San Francisco have musical chemistry, and while at first listen you might think they learned to play five minutes ago, upon repeat listen you realize how damn catchy all the songs really are. Add a trumpet that sounds like something from an Angelo Badalamenti score and you've got one hell of a band. Erase Errata claim they wrote ten songs the first half an hour they were together, and you can tell a definite difference between their improvised songs and those more structured, but don't worry, I doubt you'll find dead heads listening Erase Errata jam out anytime soon; I bet Jerry Garcia would have had to smoke at least a pound of weed before he got into this. However, on this album it's apparent that there's less improvisation than on their last album, Other Animals. Besides, the often sparse arrangements make it absolutely certain that these chicks carry a punk aesthetic through and through.

4.0 out of 5 stars a good record 29 Oct 2003
By doug - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Their debut album from a couple years ago may one day be considered a classic and this album isn't too bad from what I am hearing. I have listened the whole way through 4-5 times and it is a very cohesive record that flows well throughout with the occassional failure, but that was really basically the same with the last record. The one difference with this record and the first is that the first record had some really great high points while this one doesn't achieve those highs quite as often. It's still one of my favorites from this year, but I wouldn't say it is better than the Drive By Truckers record, Beulah record, or Broken Social Scene record. If you liked the first album then definitely buy this one, but if you are new to this band and are looking to buy their best album go with their first.

3.0 out of 5 stars they're no Scissor Girls 26 Nov 2003
By I. Berger - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is okay, pretty good. I'd go so far as to say it's not bad. But for christ sakes music listeners, go back to the source and listen to the Scissor Girls! Start with "We People Space With Phantoms" and work your way through their other mazes. THEN come back and listen to this. Having said that, I should also say that I think Erase Errata is a very good band and you should try to see them live -- how about that drummer, eh? Still, they're no Scissor Girls.
