Recording: Disappears

Artist: Disappears

Song: Power

Recorded at The Garrison, October 25, 2013.

Disappears - Power

Full review to follow. At their one-a-year pace, Disappears have dispatched fourth album Era with the same sort of machinelike efficiency found in their music. And with the new album in hand, it was nice to see the band back in town, presenting the new songs wrapped in an incredible wall of volume at The Garrison. As soon as the guitars kicked in at the set's beginning, the row of people in front of me all stepped back at once, as if they had been physically pushed. That overwhelmingness made the first twenty minutes or so of the set the most mind-blowing, but this pretty impressive all the way through, thanks in no small point to drummer Noah Leger, who is doing an admirable job replacing Steve Shelly in providing precision minimal rhythmbursts.
