A Frames - Black Forest: an abrasive shower to wash all that buttery pop away!

I acknowledge that I didn't know A Frames before I listen their new 3rd album "Black Forest".



The intro of the record, the opening titletrack "Black Forest I", retrieved me to the recent works made by Liars: raining noise and a distort and pulsing bass that seems the heart of a metallic crawling with life forest.
Then the attack of the next song "Experiment", with that martial drumming, the hopping bass and the guitar as scratching as nails on a smooth wall without any grip, and the voice, the voice that gives a shiver along my shoulder, while a schizoid and epileptic silhouette it draws before my eyes: Ian Curtis. That image does not hint to go out of focus also in the next song "Galena", in fact it wiggles always faster and without any coordination, just like after a tarantula bite.
The injected venom flows under the skin, whacking the body off, just like an electric shock and the body changes as it passes through, mixing the screams with thousands of voices and thousands of echoes, while the past runs fast. The frames are short: the Johnny "Rotten" Lydon's punk in "Death Train", while the virus grafts on a bluegrass substrate in "Files". In "Eva Braun" it re-emerges, dressing like Ian Curtis's Joy Division, even in the choice of the hated nazi imaginary, able to keep opaque lights flaring in the middle of the rotten.
Dark and pealing funk-punk à la Liars in "Black Forest II", with odd tempos, broken by continuous hiccups.
With "Memoranda" an "U-boot", A Frames brings the dark wave back home, in the USA, and here the obsessive rythmes meet the typical american indie-rock guitar wrenching embroideries: two sparkle asters in a black sky.
"My teacher" is a slowly overlapping of dialoguing voices for a tempory apparent calm, which noise and rythm restart from, swithcing till the end funk-punk and dark wave attitudes in “Age of Progress”, “Negative” and the final “Black Forest III", that abrasively closes the record , drowning it under a noisy shower.
Buy "Black Forest" @ Sub Pop records.
