IRA: The Body and the Soil: CD

Debut from this German five piece. I like a band that has the nerve to put a fifty-seven second song on the same record with a fifteen minute plus piece. Large, volcanic, sheets of sound protrude from this record like a broken bone. Hard to describe them with some precision. Sonic Youth meets Pelican? Hum meets Dillinger 4? You’ll have to be the judge but this does have so many ups and downs you’ll probably get carsick. Intriguing.
