4.0 out of 5 stars Love labelling music? ...Then try labelling this 22 May 2007
By russell clarke TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Love labelling music? Then see how you get on with Alex Deliverys baffling debut album .The Brooklyn based quintet music takes in so many disparate influences it will give Wikpedia nightmares. Six songs , three of which clock in at around ten minutes and about twenty styles and genres shoehorned in. Prog and pop , or should that be prop? Krautrock and jazz , or should that be Krazzrock?Psychedlia and lo-fi should that be ......oh hell you get the drift.

Opening track "Komad" is probably the stand out track and is a barmy amalgamation of dissonant electronic freak out, catchy loops and dips and the sound of a steel band playing as if their life's depend on it. That's not even mentioning the percolated yet oddly normal vocals of Robert Lombardo.

"Rainbows" is far prettier....and shorter with radiant keyboards and wobbly sound effects though the creaky cricket clicks and paroxysmal percussion give it a slightly sinister air. "Milan" and "Sheath Wet" are extended motorik work outs that never quite gel like "Komad" .Intriguingly it's the lack of a everything including the kitchen sink approach on these tracks that make them less satisfying . While never hitting a propulsive edifying groove neither song has enough to really grab the attention or thrill and delight for the duration though the carnival waltz last third of "Milan " and the stuttering groaning dynamics of the latter half of "Sheath Wet "are well worth sticking around for.

The by comparison blip of the two minute "Scotty" is like a fairground on the Somme while "Vesna" sounds like someone chain sawing contestants on "Grease Is The Word" , which is incidentally not a bad idea, before descending into sparking chaos and then there is the vaudeville bit at the end.

4.0 out of 5 stars This is more like it! 27 April 2007
Format:Audio CD
This is great. If I were to be lazy i'd say it sounds a bit like the Soft Bulletin-era Flaming Lips meets Black Dice with Kevin Shields on the mix and someone who could give Can's Jaki Liebezeit a run for his money on Drums .But its in a world of its own really. Imagine the kind of modern American rock thats done by the likes of Midlake but with some nutcase in the studio intent on making sure that everything sounds warped and mangled beyond normal comprehension. There are strings, horns, all manner of percussion and keyboards here but nothing is left alone, everything is filtered, flanged and LFO'd beyond recognition in a very admirable and really enjoyable way. There are also some great songs in here, you just have to listen more carefully to hear them. I heartily applaud this approach and hope more bands follow suit and stop falling back on the boring 'vintage' purism that seems to be so prevalent right now.
