Bleeding Rainbow – “Interrupt” – [Kanine Records]

Buttoned-up alt-rock/noise-pop/shoegaze. A lot of guitar-soup and punk-minded music infused with mid-90′s indie-like songwriting. The drum and bass lines are really tight. Tempos are quick and most tracks clock in at about 3 minutes, so the tracks don’t take the time to explore sounds and textures as in previous work, “Yeah Right”, but that seems to be a positive choice in my opinion. Substantial wailing in the male-only vocals, contrasted with the even-toned female lead vocals, coming together in the middle of the boy-girl tracks.

Standouts: Images, Start Again, Phase
“Images”: includes strained vocal hysteria that doesn’t play too well, or maybe it does. In any case, still one of the standout tracks. Echoes of Sonic Youth/Thurston Moore.
“Monochrome”: wordless vocals/moaning, classic shoegaze, reminds me of My Bloody Valentine.
“Phase”: LOTS of reverb.

I am not familiar with their discography, but I get the impression from web reviews that the focus of their series of albums hasn’t really been consistent, but that they are headed in a good direction with this album.
