Death From Above 1979
Black History Month
( 13/06/05 679 recordings)
The lurching instrumentals to this gritty single grabs you and shakes you into an attentive state, while the Jaeger with a splash of Gaz Coombes vocals of Sebastian Grainger (also the drummer) give the track a longing and slightly haunting feel. This funeral parlour dwelling Canadian outfit blends together garage, rock and blues to provide a stripped down howling number with enough subtle touches to keep the listener alert.
A voyage into the space art rock genre is provided to by way of the zapping and upbeat ‘Luno’, with a crunching percussion element that gives the number that extra lift and adds to the piercingly provocative streak that runs through it. Death From Above 1979 manage to proffer honest and captivating rock inspired music without using one guitar, give this pair a round of applause.
