Boomkat Product Review:
This was the New York trio's first album, dating back to 1995, and set the blueprint for their highly influential brand of slowcore fuzzscaping. 'Sounds In Motion' is a perfect example of a piece of music threatening to explode into life at any moment: driven by the simplest of basslines, the track feels like it's on the edge of arriving at some high-octane crescendo, but it's only by the following track, 'Next To Nothing' that it all kicks off with drums and downbeat boy/girl vocals. The album proceeds, saturated in distorted guitar texture and cavernous swirls of Kevin Shields-style noise sculpting, which all sounds every bit as current as the sort of second generation shoegaze Deerhunter concoct for Kranky nowadays. Excellent.
