If you're sick of trawling through mediocre electronica albums on Jamendo, give this a listen! This is some of the cleverest music I've heard on Jamendo.
To me it sounds like Captain Beefheart meets Botch/Dillinger Escape Plan. It's dissonant, yes, but in a good way. You might not like this album the first time you hear it, but it grows on you. It took me a few listens, then I was hooked!
I've been listening to this album and "It's not Necrophilia..." non-stop for a week now. This is exactly the type of music I want to find more of on Jamendo - challenging, experimental stuff.
Despite this being some of the best music I've heard for a while, it doesn't seem to be getting too many listens or reviews. This is a real shame. This band deserves much more recognition than this!
This is the second album that I have listened to by Science vs. Witchcraft and I'm definitely enjoying the band a lot.
This album seems much less noisy than the other, more structured and not as all over the place. Very post-hardcore and post-rock sounding, with some math and even a little bit of dance punk on 30 Stones. Sounds like some Kinsella influence on Space Jam... At the end of the song there's a tone that made me think my laptop was gonna die though, I freaked out a bit. Great stuff!
I read the last review and before I even listened to the band at all, I knew that I would like it. I got through half of the first song, then decided to throw on my headphones and actually sit down and listen to this. Cheerleeding kind of reminded me of Do Not Compute by Drive Like Jehu so that's probably what got me hooked.
The album is dark and very dissonant, extremely harsh, but personally I dig that sound a lot. I like the mathy but tasteful guitar work throughout most of the songs. Though I must say the 4th song got me a little out of the mood, A Typical Afemale got my attention right back and like all good albums, the closing track was definitely a standout.
I really enjoyed the listen, very experimental but it was kind of a blend of a lot of great noisy genres. Definitely not for everyone, but for the people that are bored with average modern music this is a demanding, but rewarding listen.
