4.0 excellentjoplinpicasso | August 1st 11

The spaced-out, trippy twin of Anahata; on their In The Fishtank session, recorded only months after in Europe, June Of 44 craft some of their most enjoyable music, mixing their funk leanings, electronic loops, and guitar soundscapes together to create a colorful melting pot of ideas and moods. "Pregenerate" has ebbs and tides of drum rolls and feedback; "Generate" plays like a smoother "Escape Of The Levitational Trapeze Artist" off Anahata, with optimistic lyrics (the only lyrical song here, so, similarly, it plays out like the EP's thesis); "Henry's Revenge" is a soulful, bouncy guitar showcase; "Modern Hereditary Dance Steps" is a Neu!-like, stomping rocker, with wah-wah bass, poly-rhythmic drums, and shoegazing guitar chords; "Every Free Day a Good Day" is a drum-and-bass showcase while the guitar squeal with harmonics and high-end major chords; "Degenerate" floats back into the ocean the way "Pregenerate" rolled in. This, like Anahata, oftentimes gets derided, but, taken as the jam session recording it is to truly know where the minds of the band were at the time, it's thoroughly enjoyable as Anahata's after-dinner funk-noise mint...
