Product description

Amazon.co.uk

The Exeter-based electronic trio release the follow-up to 1999's critically acclaimed debut Manual. This time around, there is greater use of samplers, squeaks and beeps, as they create ambient fairytale soundscapes anchored by revolving drone guitar and shimmering melody. The stand-out track is the intriguingly-titled "Derailleur, King Of The Mountain", a mini-symphony complete with dripping cave water. Less arresting are James Brooks' passionless vocals. Determinedly deadpan, they render a dreamy track like "Kinski In Helsinki" ordinary. Appliance are strongest when they keep to the reverberating loops and gleaming melodies, as in "Ex4", the ethereal opener, and "Slow Roller", which sounds like Joy Division meets Moby. --Lucy O'Brien

4.0 out of 5 stars New Electro Poineers 19 Aug. 2000
By WrtnWrd - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Beware the extended play! EP's are often ace single plus filler, or holding patterns for artists getting their follow-up songwriting in order. That said, there's the occasional model of consistency, utilizing the 20+ minute form to succinct effect (the best that come to mind are Pavement's Watery, Domestic, all the Belle and Sebastian EP's, and the B-52's early Mesopotamia). For a band like Appliance, the EP affords the space to extend, dabble in instrumental textures. Six Modular Pieces is exactly what it advertises - circular electronic atmospherics reminiscent of Fripp/Eno's No Pussyfooting, early Can, Sonic Youth in its more pastoral moments. Four of six tracks are instrumental; all are lyrical, evocative. "20 Minutes from the East" is a headlong rush towards arrival; "Derailleur, King of the Mountain" a leisurely canyon hike near a mountain stream; "Slow Roller" a steady, cruising steamroller. This Exeter trio is worth keeping an eye on.
