After releasing a EP of 6 songs on Acuarela the past year, this quintet - with residence between Boston and New York returns with a work that seems to have been recorded with a knife between the teeth. Direct, intense, tribal, cathartic and even hallucinogen, Spirit strikes with the force of a band which handles masterly the ingredients of the most unorthodox post-rock, late post-punk and, of course, psychedelia in ten songs which do not leave any doubts: this is one of the debuts of 2006. Apse consist of five lads from the East Coast who have been playing together with slight changes in line-up-during the last 7 years, creating one of the most serious and inspired sounds today: The nerve of slowcore, bits of post-rock dynamics and avant-garde perceptions; beauty, darkness and tension. They showcase a solid, potent and mature musical sense with influences spanning Classical compositions, Slint, Joy Division/New Order, and the Cure to the first Sonic Youth noise adventures, ambient music and a wide range of post-punk. Spirit is one of the most astounding and unique records of this year.
