This weeks album of the week looks back to more traditional guitar roots and looks back to 2006 with +/- - Let's Build
A Fire, this weeks album was chosen by Elbeknomiss. This album was the bands 3rd album and showed the band perhaps
taking it a bit easier with the synth and samples and going back to a more traditional indie rock sound as the songs here
are heavily guitar orientated, the album also showed the band playing with a lot less re verb and has no sign of a drum machine,
the album received positive feedback upon release and is said to be the bands most accomplished and mature effort to date.
Snippet from Allmusic
The band doesn't stick to this, ahem, blueprint for the remainder of the album, though; as on the previous release, there's a good deal of experimentation with time signatures and negative space. "One Day You'll Be There" is shot through with riveting stops and starts, and "Leap Year," one of four songs on the album penned by Ramos, has some refreshingly jarring percussion for a love song. Alternately hormonal and studied, plaintive and aggressive, this is by far +/-'s most mature work to date.
