Fin Fang Foom
Texture, Structure, and the Condition of Moods
The title says it all. Fin Fang Foom emanate a textured, structured musical skein that traverses and creates almost every conceivable mood. Undoubtedly, this is one of the best new bands I’ve come across this year.
The beauty of this record lies in the inability to describe it in specifics without leaving something important out. Fin Fang Foom go just about everywhere: visceral rock, subdued jams, cherubic melody, pop — the list goes on — and they weave it all into a cohesive whole.
At their root, they’re a three piece post-punk band, but they do so many things other bands of this ilk have neither the talent nor the balls to pull off. Texture, Structure, and the Condition of Moods is a rich, rewarding listen. I will be discovering and enjoying its nuances for some time to come.
