Microtia – Spacemaker review
Microtia – Spacemaker
According to description, Microtia was inspired by the likes of Bjork, Cave In, Silver Pickups and Shiner. Well, I don’t hear a whole lot of Bjork or SP on their debut.
Instead, music on “Spacemaker” reminds of Cave In / Isis – very powerful and crushing, with little room for anything but blasts of distortion and feedback (with an occasional quiet moment here and there). Wailing vocals, however, don’t fit music very well and they tend to destroy a good impression that the rest of the band creates.
