BUILDINGS: You Are Not One of Us: LP/CD

May 31, 2017

Building’s last album, MELT CRY SLEEP, blew me away with its boisterous noise, reminiscent at times of both Big Black and The Jesus Lizard. The follow up matches its predecessor in style and substance, laying down a host of mesmerising bass lines, whilst the drums switch between providing guidance to subjecting the listener to battery and assault. Alongside this, the guitar and vocals scratch away maniacally to ensure that it’s impossible to find any serenity by way of this, or any, Buildings recording. Although I really have to be in the right mood to let myself be assailed by this, when I am, it’s definitely time well spent. –Rich Cocksedge (Antena Krzyku, [email protected], / Gilead Media, [email protected]
