Really great new album. They sound more like a real band (since the album Chimeric). All releases (since 1998) are great, but I didn't expect the new album to be that overwhelming. "Pickup Pickout" is the ideal album starter, "On Dark Silent Off" the perfect second song, "Codes And Sounds" the well-fitting song to calm down and relax after the immense "Blue Noise, Black Lake". And "Rusty Machines, Dirty Carpets" is the perfect closing song to this album. All 7 songs are very enjoyable. In fact, I've listened to the album 15 times, and never skipped a song once, always listened to the whole thing.
"We are in the middle of finishing our next album . Release: Autumn 2016 on Thrill Jockey Records !" - it says on their website. Finally, can't wait! Everything they did so far is great, their 5 releases as well as their collaboration with Howe Gelb.
