remember remember - The Quickening
**Includes free album download redeemable from the label** Kicking off with ‘White Castle’ which sounds something like Emeralds covering Steve Reich, it’s hard what to make of Rock Action’s Remember Remember. It’s Krautrock, but not like any Krautrock you’ve heard before – the extensive many-membered act is too scattershot to succumb to such simple classification. Occasionally they sound more like Bo Hansson or David Axelrod, at others more aligned with the post rock of label bosses Mogwai. What I can say though is that ‘The Quickening’ is a fantastically arresting record, with all the emotional heft and soundtrack-laced qualities you’d hope from an instrumental record. This is truly an instrumental band who don’t need vocals at all – there is never a time when you’d expect the music to be anything else. Maybe a good comparison would be Clogs or Belle Orchestre, and while Remember Remember show more of a willingness to incorporate synthesizers, their composition is similarly jaw-droppingly intense.
