Album Review

Blown Away is a far noisier, more experimental album than the previous Unseen Ripples From a Pebble. As such, the Wolfhounds failed to become the indie pop darlings that other C-86 contemporaries achieved (e.g., the Wedding Present or the Bodines). Still this album is not without merit. The trashy guitar is somewhat reminiscent of Sonic Youth, bouncing along to the bass and vocal influence of the Fall or even Krautrock. Distinctly lacking, however, is a great pop song in a similar vein to "Cruelty" or "Anti-Midas Touch." The unusual rhythms of Blown Away mean that this album is destined to grow on the listener. Unfortunately, there is no baited hook to catch the casual nighttime radio browser.
