A wailing, distorted, fuzz-soaked monolith of an indie-rock record, 'The Sun Makes Me Move' is a marked departure from the laconic Emetrex of last album Metacomet. Then, the Boston-based outfit attracted admirable comparisons to the likes of Grandaddy and Wheat; now, they're likely to get mentioned in the same breath as Sebadoh and Sonic Youth - this is a mid-90s racket and no mistake.
'The Sun Makes Me Move' is available as a download - you're advised to check the label website - but also as a rather fantastic, super-limited-edition five-track EP. The extra tracks on the EP are worth owning, although they do lack the immediate impact of the title track - 'Take The Screw Out' is a melancholic alt-country corker, whilst 'All I Want (Is To Be Free Of You)' is a sample-heavy dreamscape vaguely echoing past releases. Go get, now.
