Another onslaught of ear-flooding electronic post-rock from the never knowingly understated 65daysofstatic, 'Weak4' is a bombardment of the senses, full of technoid complexity and hard-hitting, arena-sized instrumentation - like a more credible version of Pendulum. The Cure's Robert Smith adds a vocal to 'Come To Me', which along with some lovely strings helps the track stand out above the band's recent output. 'Memorydress' is the final entry on this digital single, starting out as a 'Tubular Bells'-ish electronic 4/4 number, only to become a typically grandiose heavy-rocker when the band hit their stride.
*Digital edition includes songs by new Full Time Hobby signings Timber Timbre and Let's Wrestle.* This new sampler from the Full Time Hobby label is well worth getting hold of. In addition to the exceedingly reasonable price, the tracklist features a selection of new and recently released gems from the label's roster, including a previously unheard song from Fujiya & Miyagi, 'Taiwanese Boots', lifted from their forthcoming new LP. Further highlights crop up in the form of recent outings by School Of Seven Bells (the ace 'Babelonia'), Tunng, Malcolm Middleton, The Leisure Society, Erland & The Carnival, Micah P. Hinson and White Denim.
