Item ID: 339707

Disappears are that rarest of musical things, a 'rock' band affiliated with Kranky. But at least they are a rock band & not some less than reasonable facsimile, because let's face it; most bands using that descriptor would not sonically intimidate your grandmother if she were alone in a dark alley. And
deliver the granite the Disappears do from the opening chords, delivering scuzzy, driving rhythms that certainly imply a threat of ill will. Drawing on a combined reverence for reverb, heavy tremolo, distortion, delay & repetition, Disappears play minimal rock music inspired by krautrock, punk rock, the mid 80's New Zealand scene & a bit of everything in between. And in their minimalist approach the band finds their real strength, hammering home chord structures that are tried & true and can and do remain fresh in the hands of the right talents such as these.

Also available: LUX (LP).
