A record well entrenched, with a very striking cover, cold as ice, but very refreshing, much harder than a New Yorker (which is quite) and strong as a Berlin's native (capable of handling everything).
Back to basics is the flagship race of this wonderful album.
Recorded in Berlin (PERFECT !!!), Strange Weather Isn't It? represents a transitional period for the band. John Pugh, Justin Vandervolgen and Tyler Pope each exited the band prior to its release, which contributed to the change in the band's dynamic. And that change is reflected in the title as well. Built largely upon the framework that made the band's prior three albums such highly enjoyable disco-punk gems in their own right, Strange Weather strips away some of the rock elements in their sound in favor of a sleeker, more electronics heavy production rife with elements of dub and house. These elements loom large on first single "AM/FM," a disco nightcrawler that layers on echo effects and hypnotic, pulsing electro. At its heart, it's a !!! song, just a little more sinister, which makes it just a little more fun.
Without going into the conventions !!! brings his new work, which invites us to dance at once, full of excellent bass rhythms", hypnotic guitars (as we are accustomed to, but this time much better).
They're still thumping out the same grooves that have been steaming up clubs for the past decade. But at the same time, !!! has embraced new elements and evolved since their early days of bolstering punk rock with disco beats.
Strange Weather, Isn't It? stimulates pleasure zones and sends the pulse racing yet again, but don't be surprised if it's followed by a sudden chill.
In my opinion (very personal) as an individual must have a deep respect for art and to artists, especially those who make music, are very difficult times for the music industry and artists who compose, create an image and sustainable over time substance into the music it's hard work and I think !!! are AWESOME artists who have made an amazing job, nurtured in the way and time by many streams and flourish in this new album a lot of them, this new album is spectacular!!!, full of interesting moments, my respect and admiration for entertain us, make us happy ( or melancholy), and especially for making us feel, which is a core mission of the music (opining personally) and once again thanks for make us DANCE !!!, my deepest respects to you guys.
!!! ARE THE BEST...
