Long Drive To Iceland
“Indie Math Noise Rock.” This phrase should bring fear and loathing to any music fan. Noisy, yes; but sloppy, dissonant, hard to listen to and filled with ragged time signatures, Skyline Rodeo is not Scott Joplin. A low point occurs on track five, “Advent of the Indie Yuppie,” which ends with a 60 second droning sound reminiscent of Lou Reed’s “Metal Machine Music.” Ok, they have cool graphics, and if you want a CD cover to hang on your wall, this might do. But, unless you really grok industrial noise, or you grew up with these Brunswick NJ boys, this disc is more challenge than reward.
