There are obvious comparisons here with the lush distorted sounds of MBV, but don't let that dissuade you from picking up this exceptional album, which has a definite carachter of it's own.
With SMs more pounding simple drumming the even the most 'rock 'n' roll' songs take on a certain shoe gazey dance feel to them with great noise crescendoes and euphoric 'hands in the air' blasts of power inbetween the disonance.
Ranging from Noisecore to Fuzzy punkpop, SM display a knack for layering and playing with noise as an extra instrument in qute a number of ways.
beautiful complex music but with a rock 'n' roll attitude - layer upon layer. If you can get through a few listens, there's just so much more to discover.
