Black Forest [Digipak] by A Frames (CD, Mar-2005, Sub Pop (USA))
Having cut their musical teeth many years prior on bands like Cows, Butthole Surfers and Scatch Acid, Seattle's A Frames formed during the late 19990s and designed their own brand of stripped-down, neo-modern experimental noise. Angualr, angry guitaris and bleak deadpan lyrics amrch over robotic trashcan beats. MInimalist, propulsive songs about apocalyptic cultural shifts and surveillance strategeis. Their thrid full-length and first for Sub Pop retins the reawness of their earlier releases.
