BRING BACK THE GUNS: Dry Futures: CD

Jan 07, 2008

Musically, this is all over the map with little swatches of stuff plundered from nearly every conceivable source. Taking those swatches, they’ve created a quilt of herky-jerky rhythms that hinge on, say, early funk one minute, then hardcore, then some nice, catchy melody, and then some weird art-skronk tangent rears its ugly head. Dunno if it works consistently, but I give ’em an A+ for really going out of their way to think outside the box. Given the caliber of musicians involved—it’s obvious right from the get-go these guys are good on their respective instruments—they could’ve easily just opted to go the easy, usually sucky, route, but instead tried something a wee bit different, and it’s most appreciated.
