Joshua Lardue Landscape Tracks
- Words: Fitz Gitler
- Label: Afterhours
Seeing as LaRue's a member of both Chicago's dubby post-rock outfit HIM (one of the best live bands I've ever seen) and D.C.'s The Sorts, it's not surprising that this album bears comparison to groups such as Tortoise and 5ive Style. Best known for his guitar work, LaRue here utilizes the digital studio to become a one-man band, with occasional help from guests such as HIM founder/drummer Doug Scharin and Fugazi drummer Brendan Canty. A playful and mellow instrumental rock album that makes excellent use of electronic possibilities without losing one bit of that great live feeling.
