NEUTRINOS – “New Language” LP
at TTWN we try to keep up with things that come our way to review as quickly as
we can, however once in a while something slips through the cracks of the
backlog and we end up coming across it later than planned. This is one album that
I found in a crate of
records that I needed to review so I put it on the turntable to see what’s
up. Lesser Known Neutrinos offer up a
type of artsy post underground rock dished out with synths and electric violin
taking prominence. What emerges in this
are strange and compelling songs that filter in punk and post punk influences
as they tell of foreboding touching on language, global warming, colonization,
emotional pain, stasis et al with a vibe that’s at times eerie, sometimes even
dissonant, but has a wide sonic scope.
The strangeness of the music appears to be a fitting allegory to what’s
going down around us right now. While I
know LKN may not be everyone’s cup of sake, this band has piqued my curiosity
and I wonder what they’ll do musically as time moves forward.
