Product Description

Product Description

From the radiant consciousness of Britain s most intrepid sonic assassins comes a shattered mirrorball of a record fit to transform and transfix all that surrounds it in 2013 and beyond. Master, the long-awaited and devastating third album of Teeth Of The Sea, is an unprecedented junket into mind-melting abstraction and neon-drenched revelation.Nearly three years have passed since the band released Your Mercury , their transcendent second album, and the four-piece have kept very busy during this period-they ve gigged constantly, sharing stages with the likes of Goat, Circle, British Sea Power, Trans Am and Parts And Labor, collaborating live with Wire and Esben & The Witch, and taking their incendiary barrage to festivals like Roadburn, Green Man, Supersonic, Supernormal and Standon Calling.Yet the evolution of their third album was most dramatically affected by two specially-commissioned soundtrack projects they embarked on-at Branchage Film Festival in Jersey, the band performed REAPER, a new live score to a re-interpretation of Neil Marshall s film Doomsday, and a year later, at Bestival on the Isle Of Wight, they unveiled BEYOND THE TRANSFINITE, a tribute to Kubrick s 2001.In this period, the band s experimental instincts have continued to extend in a myriad directions, and whilst MASTER nods to the established Teeth of the Sea touchstones of Throbbing Gristle, Goblin, Heldon, Angelo Badalamenti and Slayer, recent work by the like of Byetone, Pete Swanson, Raime, Powell and Prurient, alongside a long-standing fixation on the disco stylings of Patrick Cowley and Giorgio Moroder, have helped to mark out a gritty, confrontational path whereby abrasive and sparkling electronic textures do battle with waves of incandescent noise and a merciless beat-driven imperative to form a powerful alchemical charge.From the concrete and chaos of North London, Teeth of the Sea have taken the psychic spectres of their surroundings and allied them to the apparitions of their trash-culture fixated imagination to create a laser-guided metaphysical foray, cinematic in scope.

5.0 out of 5 stars love or hate, bold genre mix 15 Dec 2013
This is an album that's going to split opinion. You could argue it's quite hipster, derivative and indulgent, but to me it's an instant classic and possibly even seminal - lying somewhere between postrock, krautrock, psychedelia (the one genre here i'm familiar with), and electronica (maybe also ambient?), it's really hard to give references! i'd say the strongest track is the final one but listen to the rest of it to get there, this is a well sequenced album without a bad track to be found (although some tracks are transitions, but they work well, there's about 4 "full songs" that work as singles with a decent amount of variety between them. After playing this on and off for a few weeks I only looked at the track times today; was amazed to see how long the tracks are because they don't feel it at all. Superb, addictive and worthy of repeat listens.

2.0 out of 5 stars not for me 11 Jan 2014

great musicians but don't take you anywhere all about showing off rhythmic skill and no journey, beginnings without middle or end.

5.0 out of 5 stars TOTS, hell yeah! 17 Nov 2013
It seems fair to say of bands of late that few would dare take a long, hard and somewhat mischievous look at what their peers have put out and then elbow their way inside to knead and pummel what caught a sagacious eye into a shape unlike any other. TOTS have indeed dared, and the results are both thrilling and surprising. Somewhat cinematic in its breadth and ambitious in delivery, one feels strapped in on a white knuckle ride through sequencer squelches, metal riffery, Tijuana horns, Euro electro and psychedelic prog; you name it, they've mapped a course with it. All styles served here, and when the ride ends, we find we're reaching into our pockets for cash enough to revisit this new amusement park.

There's a future in this and it's best to pay attention. Sure, TOTS have plundered the archives of all that is cool and hip in popular culture, this goes without saying,but the reference points are diverse indeed and those with their fingers on the pulse will be assured that TOTS have paid attention. They are, however, their own men and have ploughed a furrow uniquely theirs and want to share the fun with we the privileged. And quite rightly so.

And album for those of us in the know and an album for those who want to find out. Be there or be square says I.
