THE SOUND EX Palomino Demolition Records (2008)

Sound Ex

Formerly called The Sound Explosion, this bunch play a beefed up indie rock'n'roll. Opening track "Enchantment" is a bit of a driving indie thrash with rough, almost screamed vocals. And in keeping with current trends, lots of chops, chords, all with a jangly edge, and very little in the way of anything resembling individual notes let alone a solo.

Second track "Pastlife" is a little more melodic, a good bass line, but ruin it with a nod at U2.

A hint of Manic Street Preachers. The press release adds Led Zeppelin, a more distant nod. And, dare I say it, a guitar solo! Something you just don't associate with this style of music.

"Loss" has a noisier intro, before venturing with some interesting rhythms.

"Everything Will Be Fine" mixes acoustic with indie/soul. A good angle, just a little jangly. "Shaking Games" is very retro too, some good guitar and vocal work, just a little disjointed.

A largely good second album from this twin guitar four piece, although at times they do seem to be in limbo between rock'n'roll and indie, and between other influences of soul, extreme metal and guitar pop. But when things come together it is well worth a listen.
