Excellent release

by Underketing


That's absolutely a matter of luck if I found this 2000-2003 era gem, which was deposed by the Kollectif No Shape Music in the Dogmazic archive, which is currently offline, but as a volunteer for the no-profit I was beta-testing the future interface with a small subset of the archive loaded in it, and I found this album.

No need to say, you should be able to get your hands on it shortly, since much work has been done now and the Dogmazic music archive is about to be back again, and for good.

I've been deeply impressed by the high quality of this album, which reminds angrily of teenage loves, mixing Weezer, Buzzcocks, Pixies influence, but also able to sound like The Flamming Groovies on an intro...

I especially loved the versatility and audacity in the main vocals, which can, by moment, makes you remind of the young Richard Hell, but actually the main ensemble is at a very good level, with a punchy rhythmic section and excellent, simple and energizing guitar parts.

I must admit, there's also a strong Sonic Youth influence, here, quite it can be less evident than others. The production fits well the general mood of the album, with a clean and powerful sound for this garage-pop attack, and you can understand that we got what we use to have on this blog : an excellent recording. Because I won't waste my time talking about an average album.

I know I didn't reviewed much for the past two years, but this time, things had to be done... I couldn't find sleep if I hadn't shared with the world how good the record is.

Listen juste once to "I Can't Sleep" and you'll understand what I mean.
