Album Review

Disappears had their debut album, Lux, under their belts for a while before Kranky released it in early 2010. Even so, the jump the band makes on Guider, released less than a year later, is significant. The title track blasts out of the gate, revealing a nimbler version of the fiery, droning rock the band introduced on Lux. Before, they sounded like they could pummel a song into the ground, but here it feels like Disappears shoot their music into the sky. “Not Romantic” flirts with surf before revving guitars and formidable drums come together with wind-tunnel force, while “New Fast”'s nasty fuzz bass gives the song more heft without weighing it down.

Concise yet ambitious, Guider finds Disappears firing on all cylinders and going far beyond Lux's promise.
