Erase Errata – “Other Animals ” – [Troubleman Unlimited]

Local quartet with 15 short bursts of loud jumpy rock. The first thing I noticed is some jagged guitaring that owes very little to standard rock riffs and chords. They combine that with bass and drums that are aggressive and well-played. We also hear a singer who doesn’t do melody very much, but has a chanting style that’s a good fit for the type of lyrics she sings. I keep hearing the post-punk influence of Gang of 4, Au Pairs, Delta 5. The girls navigate through the complex arrangements with ease and confidence. Songs are a minute or two long; the Erasers get in, say what they have to say, then they get out. They add touches of trumpet and keyboard for occasional avant-garde effect. Two tracks are untitled instrumentals.
