cd reviews – By Chris


Efterklang: Magic Chairs (4AD / Remote Control).
It’s a typical piece of indie snobbery to suggest that Coldplay have  ruined the little patch of indie pop from which their sound arose  including every other band that resided there. Snobbery, sure, but you  try recommending a band that sounds like Coldplay and see how you  feel. Efterklang escape (just barely) sounding like Coldplay by their  use of complex orchestration and a penchant for Philip Glass style  arpeggiation (which is nearly as bad as sounding like Coldplay). The  results are intriguing enough that I am willing to risk telling you  about them with the caveat that I explain my reasoning at length on  the offchance that I am later placed in the dock for crimes against  good taste.

Owen Pallett: Heartland (Domino).
Orchestration seems to be the order of the day. This Canadian chap (of Final Fantasy fame)  would be just an interesting indie experimenter, but with a full  blimin’ orchestra backing him up he becomes a kind of indie Bobby  Darrin or Mel Torme. Overall it is a little too odd to find greatness,  but is certainly very diverting and there are moments here of genuine  awesome: check E is for Estranged or Midnight Directives. Indie Pat  Boone? That would make a good band name.

gig review

The Kill Devil Hills

The Kill Devil Hills
The Zoo – 5th February
I arrived at the Zoo found feeling welcome and in good company, much to the credit of being put on the door thanks to Zed’s S&P department. Blackwater Fever kicked the night of with some gnarly foot-tapping numbers that accompanied a tight game of pool ending with a crushing defeat. This was made easier by Shane Hicks’ rubble-vocal style and sincerely accurate guitar wailing.

Mexico City followed, starting slowly and peaking with several numbers including ‘Ain’t No Lie’ and ‘Raised an Empire’ that turned the dancefloor into something resembling a hoe-down blended with moments of hend-banging bliss. Frontman Adam Poole charmed the audience by pointing out the Kill Devil Hills’ ability to draw  such an attractive crowd. This followed with more heartfelt tunes played with a professionalism that earnt the group the Courier Mail’s People’s Choice Award at the QSong awards last year.

Taking the stage to the sounds of a looped violin, The Kill Devil Hills take the stage & immediately launch into one of a number of raucous, country-infused rock numbers. They mainly showcase tunes from their new long-player, ‘Man You Should Explode’ and track such as ‘It’s Easy When You Don’t Know How’, ‘Siam’ & ‘Cockfighter’ have new energy breathed into them as the band and crowd swelter. As turns their work is both beautiful & brutal & the band delve into older material tonight as well, with the stand out being the bar-room singalong ‘Drinking Too Much’. Unfortunately, incessant crowd chatter drowns some of the quieter material, however after a solid hour and forty minute set in the most oppressive of heat, the Kill Devil Hills triumphantly absorb the rapturous applause from the satisfied crowd.
