19 Sep 2009 // A review by CEOMong
Interconnectors’ self-titled, 6-track, self-titled EP, is chock-full of wicked air guitar moments, groovy tweaky choruses, and mellow chewy rhythmic bits all melted together with genuine beasty and grungy rock ‘n f’n roll. A staunch album; it will be staying in my playlist rotation for a long long time to come.
Another fine offering from Isaac Promotions and the Rock Factory – pretty soon they can release their own Guitar Hero! That’d be wicked awesome.
Wide-ranging and experimental while still staying faithful to their unique and awesome sound, the talented lads have been positively influenced by the best parts of a wide range of stellar artists – I reckon Interconnector could be fucken huge – watch this space!
1 – Electric Mistress – fuck it, I play it dumb!
Tastes of a more bluesy Datsuns, but more mature. Clean and clear vox, melded intricately with precise gax and rhythm. A snappy and groovy start to the EP.
2 – Do You Swing?
Nice blend from track 1, change of tone with some trippy intro gax. Reminds me of the Cure, but with heart.
3 – Valiant
Tweaky and grinding axes to hook you in, massively grand chorus rolls on in and rocks on out in perfect rhythm. I had to keep listening over and over it was so captivating. Awesomely orchestrated and performed – nice one.
4 – Fucked in the Head
Want to get a party going? Crank this up as loud as you can – a perfect moshing song, packed full of legendary riffs and short droppy rhythms, ebbing and flowing at just the right times – the kind of song you can imagine a stadium full of people rocking out to. Another truly epic song.
5 – Piglet
Punk rock drum beat, strong bass and kick-ass attitude throughout. A perfect follow-through from the previous track, a solid and groovy song.
6 – To All My Friends
A bluesy mellow intro, wanders through and introspective and ambling path – a fine and soothing end to a masterful album. Fantastic.
Slapping my knees to the beat of the drum …
