chk chk chk...

three years after "myth takes", sacramento's !!! will return with their new album "strange weather, isn't it". the album will be out on august 23 (uk) and august 24 (usa). i don't wanna lose too many words about the album, because it simply is a masterpiece. !!! have the funk and they have the gift to entertain and when i say entertain, i really mean it. the album has no real lows, but so many highs. i don't really have a favourite, but if i had to point one out, i'd go for "the hammer". it's a monster of a funky stomper. at all, the album is by far better than anything from other, similar bands such as shitdisco, radio 4 or the rapture. in the past i wasn't a huge fan of !!!, but this album is like a wake-up call to fall in love with !!!.
9,5/10 (fk)

  1. whoa! unexpected--it doesn't hold up to what i was expecting, this was the first i'd heard them,but i've heard about them forever. i will say though, that while my overall view is not particularly positive, it does have spots all over it during which i think "oh wow! i DO like this,"--so perhaps those are your highs and perhaps i need to keep listening!
