ultimate success indeed! Their increasingly melodic post-punk continues to mature on a fifth lp painted with feverish rhythms and walls of mournful guitar that engulf singer joe casey's elegiac vocals.

There are exquisite, subtle gifts from other instruments that always heighten the guitar, instead of fighting with it, explains guitarist da Silva. They help to create a harmonious wall of sound all of its own. This was intentional. Greg Ahee wanted to use different textures other than pedals, and the drone quality of some of those instruments colours the guitar and the whole sound with a warm, rich in reverb, yet all-consuming landscape for Joe Casey’s voice. “it’s a career best set of lyrics from blue collar fatalist Joe Casey that makes this such a rich and still strikingly relevant work” 5/5 – narc magazine.
