Fifth album from Austin, Texas quintet
This post-rock outfit emerged from the ashes of Electric Company in 1994. Since then, they’ve regularly dusted down the motorik art-rock template. Promise Of Love doesn’t differ, either. Stereolab-style drones wrestle with dazed boy/girl harmonies and angular guitar lines. While nothing new, a hypnotic hum and gently insistent melody sees them through. “Continuous Hit Music”and “The Hatist”show how potent drone rock can be.
