Times New Viking – Stay Awake (Matador 2008)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

its not unlike yesterdays one, is it?

really?

yes, simple melodic riffs over-laid with noise

you don’t think so?

not really, they’re pretty close to polar opposites in my opinion.

they come from the same part of the forrest, as they say.

as far as I can see everything is completely different, sound-wise, levels of complexity, the sheer noise of this.

its the same music just presented in a different style.

we’re at the last track already, it’s less than 12 minutes long.

again, I don’t hate it, if it was on the radio though, I’d probably change the station.

you’d probably think your radio was broken.

I think a lot of this music isn’t intentional.

how so?

well, when I do a painting or when a composer writes a symphony, we start off with an idea in our heads and then work towards that idea. this music, and a lot of music these days seems like people just started messing around, no clear intentions in their heads, flip a few switches here, turn on a peal there and lets see what we come up with, not that there’s anything wrong with that but if this is the sound these people had in their heads before they recorded this, they’d wanna have their minds looked at. 

SSSFFFVVVVVVHHHHHHHHSSSSHHHHHHSKKKKRRRRREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE. Hailing from Columbus, Ohio, TNV make pure pop out of deafening tape hissn’ skree, or is it the other way round? ‘Stay Awake’ will be released on the 21st of this month and the band, along with No Age and Los Campesinos will be playing in Whelans on Friday the 17th of this month as part of the Shred Yr Face tour.
