Electrelane No Shouts, No Calls
- Words: Cameron Cook
- Label: Too Pure
- XLR8R Rating: 7/10
Previously, Electrelane's records reveled in the space between pop accessibility and post-rock experimentation: Yes, there were extended piano solos and noisy distortion, but there were also frontwoman Verity Susman's soft vocals and catchy harmonies. However, on the band's fourth album, they tip the scale rather briskly to the pop side, and it's all for the better. "To the East" sounds like Nico fronting The Strokes, whereas "Five" brings together the best parts of Sonic Youth and Stereolab. It seems like Electrelane has realized what most bands only dream of: the perfect balance.
