Sprawling Noise from Tape Deck Mountain
This newish 7″ from Tape Deck Mountain is really solid. It opens with this huge wall of noise that blares right in your face; you think it’s just going to be a big loud rocker from the get-go. But, they pull back just a tiny bit, revealing a quiet pop tendency, which is briefly interrupted by a wash of noisy atmospherics from time to time. Those moments begin to unfold more often, accentuated by machine gun snare hits, as the song drifts towards its end. Always down to hear something new from this group; they never seem to let me down.
