NIKKI LOUDER: Trout: CD

Took a minute—after listening to release upon release adhering to some sort of template or another—to get the noggin around this slab of noise rock, but it was worth the effort. Lots of dissonant guitars, weird rhythmic noodling, and the like, as can be expected. When they really get going, however, the repetition gets hypnotic and almost psychedelic as each song stretches out. Not for everyone, I reckon, but those in for this kinda thang will find much to dig here.
