Boomkat Product Review:
'Dry Land' is the third album from A Whisper in the Noise, and thanks to the help of long-time friend Steve Albini (what a friend) from the first few notes it sounds absolutely stunning. They call their style Southern Gothic and I can certainly hear why, it feels intensely reverent of traditional American music, but at the same time it is dark, sinister and deeply moving. The best comparison I can come up with is Low who share A Whisper in the Noise's tendency to slow things down to a snail's pace or Radiohead for the harrowing sentiment present but the reliance on unusual production methods sets them out on their own. Occasionally letting the electronic elements take control of the entire track and occasionally simply letting the subtle Americana instrumentation ring out like a bar-room gig in a downtrodden Southern township the band never cease to keep their music engaging and this makes for a very satisfying album indeed. Also of note is the fact that this is packaged in a gorgeously printed 'aged' paper sleeve which adds an air of mystery and classicism to the whole affair. This is the kind of music you could imagine getting lost in a Lynchian landscape too, and that's no bad thing.
