The Timeout Drawer Present Left For The Living Dead
- Words: Scott Thill
- Label: Chocolate Industries
When the haze clears, Timeout Drawer's latest will dredge up somnolent memories of TNT-era Tortoise and Pink Floyd's Wish You Were Here, fed through the filter of 21st-century technoculture. But it's not just a slumber party. The churning epic "Hunting With Fire (The Most Fertile Ground For Drama)" ably channels the entire spirit of Mogwai's Young Team in only 12 minutes. And if that song's title (one of only four on the disc) is any clue, these cats get cerebral on the regular-and all without vocals. In other words, Presents Left For the Living Dead is a think piece of a release. If that's your bag, then these guys might be your gift.
