Boomkat Product Review:
Now at a special price - while stocks last! Having not quite delivered on the press-hype that surrounded their debut, it looks like the band have actually come up with the goods this time around. From the oversaturated sound of the suitably raucous title track you can hear a marked development in both the band's writing and their sound on record. There's far more sophistication here, and while previously it was vocalist Alec Ounsworth's wild vocal style that provided the group's most distinctive asset, Some Loud Thunder is loaded with idiosyncrasies and ambitiously out-there sounds that are far subtler than anything you'd hear from your more run-of-the mill leftfield pop acts. Just listen to 'Mama, Won't You Keep Those Castles In The Air Burning?', it manages to be at once ambitious in scale, yet utterly concise as a piece of pop music. At least some of this album's success can be attributed to the work of producer Dave Fridmann, who helped make Mercury Rev's Deserter Songs and The Flaming Lips' The Soft Bulletin such arresting albums back in the late nineties. Excellent material beautifully presented throughout. Highly Recommended.
