A Frames Black Forest
- Words: Carla Costa
- Label: Sub Pop
Dear A Frames, what‘s up with you guys being the best droning rock band since Teenage Jesus and The Jerks? Is it the monster chug of the bass and drums ("Galena," "Black Forest II")? Is it the minimalist, jagged guitar lines strategically ripping open the delicately placed bright melodies mid-song ("Memoranda" "U-Boat")? Is it the bizarre lyrics delivered like lost communications from the Postmodern Emotional Mind-Fuck Intelligence Agency ("Quantum Mechanic")? Whatever it is, the years you‘ve spent crafting it have paid off. Black Forest is a symphony of dissonance, a tribute to noise...and a brilliant one at that. Sincerely.
