This review is from: Major Arcana (Audio CD)
An interesting American indie rock band who are an amalgam of The Faith Healers, Throwing Muses, Pavement and My Ruin i.e quiet/noisy, angular and guitar driven.
Sadie has a good albeit fragile/wavery voice, noticeably on the quieter tracks 'no below' & 'gary' (which i actually preferred), and it's often low in the mix and sometimes overshadowed by the intensity of the guitars but repeated plays do reveal a depth initially not heard.
The album opens well with the excellent 'pioneer spine' and another favourite 'cash cab' has some excellent fuzzy guitars and vocals but the album as a whole is let down by a few less strong songs e.g 'casper' & 'plough' but overall worth a listen especially if you're a fan of any of the above bands.
