"Echoes of Sigur Ros and Explosons In The Sky" Artrocker
"Like analgue rays slicing through a digital mist. Completely engrossing. Wow." Brighton Source Top 20 albums of 2007... 05. Monsters Build Mean Robots - Monsters Build Mean Robots - Nice Weather For Airstrikes
"The name is striking. Think about it for a while and it conjures a harrowing doom-laden image. Monsters Build Mean Robots form of electronic oriented post-rock is formed of mostly instrumental songs with politically nuanced titles such as The Freedom To Fire Those Freedom Rockets, thisiswheretheoilcomesfrom.com and Sometimes We Sit And Stare At Passing Tanks. The intensity which that context lends the peaceful hum and whirr is palpable, becoming bolstered with guitars that really get noisy only the once for the peak of Chimes Break Through Light To Reach Us. A truly powerful, graceful, restrained and haunting record." Meatbreak & The Black Static --------------------
ALRIGHT THE CAPTAIN - Insane math guitar mayhem experiments in sound from Nottingham http://www.facebook.com/l.php?u=http://www.myspace.com/alrightthecaptain http://www.facebook.com/pages/Alright-the-Captain/7722198515
"GOOD OL TEETH GRINDING, HEAD BOPPING NASTYNESS" - Vox
"Bursting onto the stage with a chaotic and frantic disposition were Alright the Captain playing as if encountering some form of demonic possession? The Quartet are predominantly instrumental, as no singer would even attempt to sing over this wall of noise. Despite providing us with a half hour of regimented chaos, the unyielding volume of noise did become too much towards the closing of their set. That being said instances of 65 days of static and Battles, i believe could be heard, Arguably a flattering comparison." - SANDMAN MAGAZINE
Alright the Captain? write whats comes naturally in the practice room, culminating in a weird mix of musical stylings with an elusive sound that ranges from the down right strange and dirty to melodic day dreams that spiral into insanity. What started off as a bunch of stoned meandering jams with little or no direction, developed into a definitive sound with evolving hall marks that make up the experience of Alright the Captain?
from the distorted synth bass to the angular dissonance of the rhythm guitar through to the ambient delayed lead guitar textures and the solid drum tracks kicking against the glitchy electronic loops and trippy samples, Alright the Captain? have a unique musical character and an open minded approach to their genre bending anti-rock... --------------------
HOT DAMN - Intricate instrumental math clanky guitar synth pop keys from Brighton... http://www.facebook.com/l.php?u=http://www.myspace.com/hotdamnbandhttp://www.facebook.com/l.php?u=http://www.virb.com/hotdamn
"A powerful blend of epic, synth and six-string sonic implosions rolling over drummer Rich Phoenix's edgy beats like ocean waves crashing into the shore. Heads are nodding and bodies following, and with a truly monumental finale, Hot Damn may prove a hard act to follow." Drowned In Sound "Nicely spray painted artwork and a really nice sounding set of home studio taped mini post-rock blood-ruch epics that skirt from Mogwai to Do Make... to Fly Pan Am in structure, vision and song titles like 'What I Heard Through The Barrel' and 'Mega Panda Force'. We'll be coming back to this band." Brighton Source
"All manner of Tortoise-esque post-rock twiddlings and oddball grooves. A treat." Puregroove Records London --------------------
