According to the label’s website, this came out in September of 2009, so I’m not sure why we are getting it to review now but I think it’s a worthwhile piece of music, so I’m glad I received it. Truth From Facts are from Australia and have an aggressive math rock sound. The twelve songs clock in at thirty-two minutes and come off with a nice Chicago influence. At various times I hear everyone from Slint, A Minor Forest, June of ‘44 and the underrated Traluma. However, compared to those acts, Truth From Facts seem to showcase more aggressive guitars, although they’re never obnoxious. This isn’t anything spectacular, but it’s competent and earnest and that’s way more than I can say for most things I get to review.
