Boomkat Product Review:
Boston's The Hole Punch Generation present their eponymous debut album, an epic slab of electronic shoegaze rock comparable to Sigur Ros or Radiohead. The group formed five years ago and have coalesced into a sophisticated unit centred on Patrick Balthrop's emotive falsetto and supported by walls of finely tailored electronics, deploying a complex mesh of modified instrumentation passed through Max/MSP, SuperCollider, and Reaktor patches around improvised live drums and tempered distortion. However, they adhere to one strict rule: "If we can't do it live, we don't do it in the studio." The acutely measured impact of their sound is impressive, and while it undeniably does recall the likes of M83 and co, they've got a more mature and finely structured take individual to The Hole Punch Generation, almost like they were born six feet tall.
