Another new release, and another new band on Revelation. This is the debut album from Fell To Low, a Californian band who have had a previous release on React! Records. I'd never heard the band before, but when they popped up on Rev I obviously knew I would have to buy their record. The LP is titled 'Low In The Dust' and came on either clear vinyl or some whack black 180g option. The choice was a no brainer for me.
So, first thing to say is that I'm not sure if I'm into this or not. I mean, it's not anything like the typical Rev release, and nothing like the React! releases in my collection either. I have no idea how to describe this band. Their profile on Rev states 'They deliver a smart and angular form of punk with odd timing, build ups, melody and wit that brings a hardcore approach to a sound pioneered by Slint, Unwound and June of 44'. I think I listened to Slint once and found it dull, and I've never heard the other two bands, so I can't tell if the description is good or not. Pretty much all I can say is that this sounds different. But I'm still not sure if it's different good or different bad at this point.
