CTRLer - International HiTech Noize
Drum 'n' bass, electric guitars, soothing/melodic
piano, singing, yelling, rapping, and operatic vocals, hard beats
and break beats, crunchiness, and pounding rhythms all describe
International HiTech Noize.
The first release on the band's new label, Error
Deluxe Records, International HiTech Noize encompasses
a spectrum of sounds to titillate our senses. The CD is broken into
two parts: HiTech Noize, which contains the louder', more
pounding rhythmically 'noisy' tracks, and International Xperimentation,
which contains the slower, groovy and reflectively intense selections,
for the most part. The CD ends (just before a brief, upbeat, hidden
instrumental track) with my favourite, the pleasingly aching, sad,
slower track, Suffer AM.
From start to finished you'll be entertained by the
high quality of this release on numerous levels. To start, the aesthetic
of the CD, itself, and the website are both beautiful. But you'll
find that the band's impeccable sense of design is topped by their
keen sense of composition with each track.
The band creates succinct songs that have every element
you'd hope for in a great track: enticing intros, captivating build-up,
sustenance of middle substance, relieving interludes, and effortlessly
satisfying conclusions. There's a perfect blend of dark and light,
slowness and upbeat energy, which brings you up, rather than drains
you or drags you down. This CD invigorates!
You'll find there's just the right amount of
variety across this release to nourish your listening desire. Be
prepared for a sonic encounter of intense pleasure!
