FT (THE SHADOW GOVERNMENT): Black and White Album: 12"

May 26, 2008

This Iowa City band piles on the noise! From the liner notes and enclosed information, it’s apparent they are paranoid, conspiracy-laden, and into drugs and electronics. Some songs are bleeps and squeals while others come off as Fugazi-esque. This release is on white and black vinyl (looks cool spinning on my turntable), and was reportedly recorded in ten different locations. Steve Albini did a track as well! I recommend checking this album out, if not for the diversity of the arrangement. One minute you could segue it into Foetus, the next with Black Dice. If you like live musicians playing profusely with electronics as well, this is a score.
