This Weekend I’ll mostly be listening to… Twinkranes December 24, 2009

Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.

Okay, it’s a late entry for the year, but… this is good good stuff if you like motorik, progressive and such like. Twinkranes are Irish from Dublin… as it happens I once met briefly and in passing their drummer vocalist. Which is so entirely irrelevant I’m not sure why I mention it. Other though than to say I wasn’t introduced to him by his “band name” of Blonde Fox (although as band names go it’s a fair sight better than Bono Vox). Anto… so I was told.

I heard Being konG some years back and thought it was pretty good, if not indeed great, that an Irish band was producing material like this which seems miles away from the usual well worn grooves. Their recently released album Spektrumtheatresnakes lives up to that standard.

What I like most about it is that it sounds convinced. This isn’t messing around, it’s no pro forma exercise (as Robert Christgau might put it) in arid experimentation for its own sake, it’s melodic, angular, sincere….it’s get in there and do it.

Much to like here and certainly it seems to be a good fit with much else that has occupied the weekends in the last year or so… roll on 2010.
