Numbers We‘re Animals

Not content to continue their herky-jerky garage dance quickies, Numbers holds down the buttons this time instead of tapping them repeatedly. The trio has grown up a little: instead of lashing out on occasion, Dave Broekema‘s guitar now crunches out a downbeat drone, only intermittently poking up for little broken-string flourishes. Indra Dunis‘ drums stop and start with abandon, and occasionally hand over their place in the mix to Eric Landmark‘s groaning Moogs. There are shades of old, funky, two-minute Numbers here, but now they share space with noise and epic drones. It‘s a mess, but a compelling one.
