Electric Turn To Me - s/t
(No Quarter Records 2003, CDEP)
Uploaded to Aural Innovations: December 2003
This is a NYC based band with members of the Mars Volta (Drums), Ex-Laddio Bolocko and Imaginary Numbers members and complemented by German vocalist Silke. The EP has 4 new tracks and is the bands third release. The music is very 60’s inspired and strange. "First Crimes" starts the CD and is quite frantic to start before the band goes into a very 60’s sounding track, mostly due to the organ playing, which is fantastic. Silke has a very special voice but it blends in well with the feel of the music. Quite a crazy song. "Watch Out For The Witch" has a distorted vocal and is based on a heavy bass line and is quite psychedelic with the fuzzed out song and phased organ. "Nightvision" is the longest track at 5½ minutes and the most accessible of the songs on the EP. This is sort of a weird pop tune. It could be in a David Lynch film! "Ride The Wave" closes the CD and is very 60’s inspired but the drumming is more intense. Really excellent stuff.
