Boomkat Product Review:
This second album by The Race was produced by Telefon Tel Aviv's Josh Eustis in his Chicago studio, in collaboration with the central creative force behind the band, Craig Klein. I say central, but at the time of recording, Klein had taken on all the writing and performance responsibilities after the band's initial line-up dissolved. With Ice Station, Klein only recruited extra performers as he felt he needed them, so this album isn't really comparable to the more openly collaborative If You Can album (The Race's 2004 debut). The songs here are preoccupied with conjuring frozen, icy landscape imagery, both explicitly with Klein's Siberia-fixated lyrics and figuratively with the frosty, bleak echo cast over the guitars and pulsing drum machine. The standout track, 'Feathers' actually avoids much of the rest of the album's concerns with sterile, isolated sonic landscapes, instead sounding like the fuzzy, over-saturated pop Clap Your Hands Say Yeah produced for their Some Loud Thunder album. Very nice indeed.
