Tremulant kicks off with Concertina, a track that starts off deceptively loudly with a burst of guitar, fading into a high-pitched ATDI-style riff, just slower. The melody in this track is truly excellent, and is mainly a showcase for Cedric's voice, which sounds better than ever, lapsing into Spanish for a bit, halfway through the song. Second up is Cut That City, a much more upbeat track, and exhibits yet more shimmering vocals. With a punchy bassline. Outside the chorus, guitars don't seem to be showcased that much, instead relying a little too much on effects pedals, while the chorus itself leaves a little to be desired. Eunuch Provocateur is the third and final offering, and what an offering it is. With drums that are so fast they could well be helped by a drum machine (I'm not entirely sure), a spidery bassline and distant, screeching guitars, this is perhaps the best song on the EP, aswell as the only one that seems to not revolve around Cedric's vocals.
Overall, it's a brilliant first offering from Mars Volta.Read more ›
