Björk  Biophilia CD/LP
All right, so let's just go with the obvious question. I know it's the obvious question because it's the one I have heard already a good couple dozen times. "Is it better than the last few albums?" First of all, last few? Few? I think the amount of Bjork releases gets distorted because of the amount of time in between each - or maybe the Drawing Restraint soundtrack is being counted or all the singles?  I'm not sure really.  Secondly, Bjork is great and I'm totally biased.  I like Volta and I like Voltaic too (the live one consisting of songs from the former - maybe this is included in the "few."). I like Medulla and I like Selma Songs (also a soundtrack and arguably not a proper Bjork album).  I absolutely love Vespertine and Homogenic and Post and Debut.  I even find the more folky solo things before those pretty endearing (let's not even begin to discuss those though).  Biophilia is great.  My slanted prejudice view had me believing this before I heard one note, but each note I've heard (I'd say I'm on my 12th or so listen) since has been a reassurance of that thought. It's great. There are fun breakcore/hard-tek elements which doubly draw me in.  The light strings and her voice make this a minimal journey at times and then the maximalist bursts of drums balance it.  Yes, it's better than Volta.  I said it there.  There, I said it.  It's got way more elements than I can begin to discuss here in my short review. Listen for yourself.  If you're like me you already know you like it.  This is just some reassurance.  Oh, and the LP got pushed to a 24th of October release so we only have the CD right now. Oh and since this is fairly a non-review I'll give you another heads up from my ears/guts - the TEETH 10" that's on this update is easily the most soothing disc to my inner bass fiend this week.

Exitmusic From Silence 12"
(Secretly Canadian)
There’s a great deal of emotive passion on this EP. Originally a duo consisting of Brooklyn-based couple Aleksa Palladino and Devon Church, the addition of drummer Dru Prentiss and electronic musician Nicholas Shelestak enhances their forceful, provocative electronic sound. There’s an epic, dream-like sound throughout, as if it were recorded in a vast marble palace by the ocean. This ethereal sound, complete with breathy, resonant vocals, is reminiscent of bands like Sigur Rós. The vocals sound incredibly mournful; Palladino delivers them in a way that sounds like crying out her message so the whole world can hear it. It will be interesting to see what this group experiments with in the future. They certainly know how to convey the theme of loss, and make sure the listener knows exactly how they feel.

RazorxFade RazorxFade LP
(Not Normal Tapes)
RazorxFade is a straightedge outfit from Chicago, IL. Midwest Wolfpack.These dudes play fast pissed off hardcore with just the right amount of squealing feedback and plenty of punch-anything-that-moves mosh parts. They've got an early Boston influence for sure, but if you like bands like Tear It Up, Cokebust or even Colin Of Arabia, you'll probably dig this. Most bands coming out with this style shouldn't put out more than a 7" worth of material at a time (I feel this way about 75% of all hardcore). It gets old and boring fast, much better in little bursts. Not RXF, this 10 song LP is well written & structured and leaves me wanting more! I hope they make the trek to CT soon.
