Fire Spoken By The Buffalo – Hiatus
I absolutely LOVE albums that sound dirty, grungy, and dark. “Hiatus” lands smack dab in the middle of those descriptors. FSBtB sticks to standard instrumentation (guitars, bass, drums), and thanks to a penchant for reverb and creating sonic space, a great atmospheric sound is the result. Their sound is reminiscent of Mogwai, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, and maybe a little Neurosis, minus the cyclical repetitive riffing. Me likey. Stand-out tracks: “There Go The Ships” and “Broken Axe, Open Wound”.
