REVOLT REVOLT: Wild Unraveling: CDEP

A pleasant jumble of genre-friendly angles—bits of Velvet Underground, Sonic Youth, a little Sigur Ros ambience and maybe a less desert-damaged Calexico (based solely on my memory of what Calexico sounded like some fifteen years after I last listened to ‘em). They also often employ the tension-release song structure making for big, crashing buildups between laid-back waves of soporific grooves. Not something I often come across in the review bins, so it was a nice palette cleanser as well as a general listen.
