Maths Balance Volumes – Tried To Make A Call C11
Fractured vocal vignettes, broken organ melodies, squelchy stunted phrases and echoey grunted rhythms – Tried to Make a Call is a tonic to a shrinking world where everybody is talking, instantly, inanely – this is communication breakdown, information claimed back and made meaningful. Heroically Pynchonian – an entropic and mathsy meltdown.
On the flip, Maths Balance Volumes offer up discordant raw guitar, strummed out, anaemic laments to a future fragile; lo-fi regressive grunge shaking with honesty and struggle. As it stutters and falls, and picks itself up – the song gathers shape, becomes stronger, eventually shuddering with a conviction and power.
