IDLE TIMES: Self-titled: CD

Mar 03, 2011

Excellent noisy pop with psychedelics swirling in the mix. One of the most solid albums from start to finish you’re likely to hear this year. Not one bad song in the bunch. “Do You Hear Those Bells?” and “Hey Little Girl” are superb and a worthy excuse to buy this record above anything else. There are elements that remind me of SST-era Sonic Youth, where the songs have a slight drone, collapse and build again, and go off in a somewhat different direction. Basically, these guys are everything you wish the Sic Alps were. Sometimes they’re straight forward. Other times, they go off into a noisy jam that is so f’n good it makes you glad to be where ever it is when you listen to this. Excellent, excellent, excellent!
