Empty Silos Echo War "Semantics"

  • Punk Planet #71
    "For once a band's name actually partly suggest a description of what they sound like-not just some gimmick or pun laden juxtapostion. With a minimalist architecture to the songs instruments playing often in isolation, one could imagine this band's sound as occuring in empty silos or echoes from afar maybe even from a war-who knows? They use an array of sounds in addition to guitar and percussion:organ, violin, and tape samples. The piano parts are perhaps the most intriguing contributions, they catch my attention like I'm straining to hear the playing from another apartment room. The songs are at times too disconnected for their own good, but the aim for such spaciousness does achieve its moments of chaotic grandeur."
