ATTACK FORMATION: We Are Alive and in Tune: CD

Jul 23, 2007

Oh me, oh my. I’m okay with admitting that this might just be beyond me. According to what I’ve deciphered from the enclosed illustration, some people use a vibraphone (or is that a marimba?), a trumpet, a drum set, about a dozen abacuses, and a tennis racket to come up with a sound that’s sort of like Japanther, but without the vocals filtered through telephone mics. There are definite parts I like, but there’s always one layer too much in each song that ends up ruining it all for me.
