Eagerly anticipated overground release from this busy quintet of troublemakers is an immense visceral slab of rackety action. While certainly their most upbeat and percussive music ever, the 9 tracks run through a wide range of styles. "The Slient Socket" has a gamelan-like 5 note melody overlaid with a hovering drone. "Magnetic Burn" is the band at its most rock, with sister-ray style guitar careening along side actual drums (!). The two 20 minute epics that bookend the record are a study in contrasts: "Ramshackle Sunrise" has the heavy and excited buzz of the groop's frequent and unpredictable live shows, while the closing "Goodnight Stars Goodnight Air" is a gentler acoustic epilogue, gliding into the rosy future.
