Dreamdecay – “Fern” – [Great Plains Records]

dreamdecay

Noise rock from Seattle.. these guys recently toured with Iron lung and they totally have that Steve Albini sort of sound except without Steve Albini… that right there should tell you what you’re getting into..Crunchy and gritty.. The riffage here is pummeling, teetering on hardcore punk with headbanger sensibilities. Super-distorto wall of fuzz all over this one sided record, keeping things nice and cacophonous,but always with dynamic which swings into straight noisy freak-out and then merges back together for some well to do jams. Sometimes things even get kinda quite for a short moment- particularly at the end of the record (look at the grooves!). These guys have a very tight sort of looseness happening here, with a heaviness to please anybody with a sweet tooth for dissonance + RnR. Programming note: discogs tells me there are five tracks here.. good luck figuring out where one ends and the next begins.. you can hear the tracks change if you keep your ears perked, but I suggest letting it spin. The whole thing runs about 19 minutes. Killer. -Surfer Rosa
