volcano! - Piñata (Album)
**Includes free copy of the album on CD** Chicago art-rockers Volcano! Have been dormant (ha, geddit?) for a while now; their last full length was way back in 2008, but from the sound of Pinata, they’ve not lost any of their hyperactive charm. The opening, eponymous track begins with the intensity of legendary electronic upsetters Silver Apples, and gives the perfect introduction to their stop-start wyrd rock experience. The pop formulas are still just about present – there’s vocals, drums and guitar but the band are smart enough to reframe them with the kind of slick muso knowledge that made us all fall in love with Dirty Projectors. That’s not to say that ‘Pinata’ could be passed off as a hipster exercise in style over content though, the album is as deep as enjoyable as anything we’ve heard in this field for a while now, and the chunky noise-heavy production just intensifies the songs. Those of you sick and tired of the indie ‘business as usual’ scene right now would do well to grab ‘Pinata’ and see what actually can be done if you put your mind to it.
