Boomkat Product Review:
Tarentel's first album in four years finds the band reduced to a trio (Sonna’s jim redd completes the line-up on drums), and with the change in personnel, the sound finds itself shifted into a more textural, layered density built from expansive improvisations of sweeping drones and walls of discordant feedback. Where taught, meticulous guitar melodies once drove their songs to conclusion, thunderous drumming now navigates the group through an uncertain abyss of layered noise, horn bursts (courtesy of musician steve dye's arsenal of homemade instruments) and the occasional lonely piano. A great shift away from the post-rock that defined their early work, this is the band's most important and absorbing release to date. Highly Recommended.
