Boomkat Product Review:
By far the best band to have emerged from Sheffield in years (and yes we know about the Arctic Monkeys), 65daysofstatic are purveyors of stunning post-electronica that pays equal lip service to Autechre and Steve Reich as it does Mogwai and Slint. Criminally overlooked, their 2004 debut 'The Fall of Math' established a blue-print which they've stuck to then refined on their follow-up 'One Time For All'; bringing together bone-shaking riffs, Nyman-esque piano and crisp'n'dry electronica in a thrilling bout of aural infectiousness to rival Leishmaniasis. From the opening peaks of 'Drove Through Ghosts to Get Here' and the frantic beat arrangements of 'Await Rescue', through to the muted reticence of 'The Big Afraid' and the string fortified bluster of 'Welcome to the Times', 65daysofstatic have crafted an awesome album that could redefine the post-rock fraternity. Further bolstered in my affections by being the last ever band I heard John Peel mispronounce, 65daysofstatic's 'One Time For All' is brute pleasure personified.
