Boomkat Product Review:
If you're fed up with the myriad US bands currently rallying against the Bush administration, led by the likes of Green Day with their faux-punk hissy fit, and would prefer an intelligent UK based response to Dubya's re-election then look no further than the new album, 'US', from British based AMP. Although not a political record in the traditional sense, 'US' has a seam of discontent running throughout that mixes their attitude towards the current occupier of the White House with issues of an individual nature, thereby rendering it searingly cathartic as well as gracefully belligerent. The album comes out of the blocks with 'Opening', a psychedelic driven fog of bass and dingy guitars that is beautifully nocturnal while 'Get Here' is a glorious blunderbuss of post-punk guitars and Karine Chraff's staccato vocals which resemble the Yeah Yeah Yeahs but minus the bleach enema, whilst 'Yousay' gives a glimpse of what Mum would sound like backed by the Mogwai boys. Proving that the 21st Century is quite able to produce its own crop of languid torch-songs, 'Implosion' in particular delivers a dreamy, acoustic strewn landscape of delicate instrumentation, with diet-strings and pulses of farfisa organ perfectly complimenting Charff's breathy, Badmarsh and Shri vocals. Gloriously discordant.
