Looper

The Geometrid

Sub Pop

If you heard the first Looper album, you have a pretty good idea of what this album holds. There’s some distorted vocals sing songing about things that could be kind of silly, if you try and take this too seriously. There are some nice grooves and beats that repeat until the song ends, and some good rhythms that can get stuck in your head if you’re not careful (sorta like “Land of the Loops”… you know the song I’m talking about…). There are some interesting sounds that shoot mellow spaceman style through the vibe, and some spoken word electro bebop beats that you can just snap your fingers to. I think I like it… but I think I liked the last one too.

Screen Reviews

The fact that the band Slaves to Sirens exists is impressive, but that they live, love, and breathe to play metal takes things to another level. Sirens documents the journey. Review by Charles DJ Deppner.
