fuck buttons' 2008 debut was a seminal collage of brittle electronics, post-rock epics, & blistering noise.
the album flows as one long piece while the band finds a surprising amount of variety in the blunt rhythms, penetrating electronic haze, & distorted vocals that make up 'Street Horrrsing's main motifs. Fuck Buttons use noise richly & expressively, but they're far from a noise band; even on the densest, most frantic moments like ‘OK, Let's Talk About Magic,’ a striking melodic sensibility guides these songs. Conversely, the prettiest moments still have a scary streak: ‘Race You to My Bedroom’'s dense atmosphere has a glowing, sunset loveliness, but its wordless chattering makes it equally rapturous & ominous.
