Boomkat Product Review:
The second Joan of Arc album to be released this week, ‘The Intelligent Design of…’ takes a markedly different direction to its companion. Instead of focussing on raw math-flecked Americana, we have electronic elements gleaming through the songs, and a glorious lo-fi recording quality that gives the tracks a certain homey warmth. In fact many moments on this album remind me of Phil Elverum’s Microphones albums or his recent Mount Eerie works, with their wanton disregard for the rules of indie rock and major label establishment. These are pop songs, but they’re wired in a different way, in a way that’s bound to put a smile on your face. Just head straight for the blipping synthesizer heavy joy of ‘Stemingway and Heinback’ for a perfect example of the band’s irreverent electrode pop styles, and it’s not as if it sounds like any of the electronic indie we see plaguing our airwaves at the moment.
