Album Review

Hella – “Tripper” – [Sargent House]

victoria west   9/13/2011   A Library, CD

Hella is back with Tripper. These guys start off fast and loud with experimental, noise, math rock on “Headless” and keep it going through the rest of the album. Hill pounding the drums freakishly fast and Seim matching the super fast speed with his guitar. Some of the songs remind me of a video game music, they are fun and catchy. At first listen all the songs kind of sounded the same to me, but the more I listened the more I could start to hear what Hella is trying to do. The complexity of the tracks and their timing is right on. Seim and Hill and totally in sync. These Sacramento guys are good. No vocals on this album.
