Reseña de álbum

Originally released in 2003 but reissued in a different sleeve in 2005, Birds at Home is the debut album by Dutch pop quartet Alamo Race Track. "Don't Frighten Them" starts the album with a brief bit of echoey downtempo electronica, but after that somewhat misleading opening, the group settles down to a crisp brand of guitar-based indie rock oddly reminiscent of the early days of Brit-pop. Pre-OK Computer Radiohead and mid-period Blur are the specific touchstones, with the former most obvious on quietly tense ballads like "Short Leave" and "Life Is Great" (which also includes a bizarre banjo-led country-blues coda) and the latter on jaunty pop tunes like "Summer Holiday" and "Happy Accidents." More of the latter may have been useful, because Birds at Home enters into a rather deadening stretch about halfway through with one slow, atmospheric number after another. Things only pick up about three-quarters of the way through with the album high point "The Low End," a slinky bass-driven groove with falsetto harmonies, and the quirky "Wild Bees," a showcase for bizarre rhythmic shifts, mumbled vocals, and acoustic slide guitars which would have fit brilliantly on any Beta Band album. Unfortunately, the somnolent title track and a belated return to the semi-electronic feel of the opener in the inconclusive closer "Life Like Fire" bring the energy level right back down. A better sense of pacing and dynamics would help Birds at Home considerably, but taken on an individual basis, these well-arranged if slightly familiar-sounding tunes are encouraging enough to bode well for the band's future.

Biografía

Género: Rock

Años de actividad: '00s

The quirky pop/rock quartet Alamo Race Track hail from Amsterdam, where bandmates David Corel (bass, vocals), Guy Bours (drums), Len Lucieer (guitar), and Ralph Mulder (vocals, guitar) initially performed as Redivider. The loss of keyboardist Diederik Nomden effectively broke up Redivider in 2001, and the remaining members subsequently regrouped under their new moniker (commonly abbreviated as ART). Impressed with the band's live show, Excelsior Recordings signed Alamo Race Track in 2002. Debut album...
