Reseña de álbum

Hornet Leg sound so different on each of their releases that they could be the work of entirely separate bands, and that's almost true: the group's founder, Chris Sutton, has been the only constant through incarnations as art noise, garage rock, and melancholy pop outfits. The version of Hornet Leg that recorded Ribbon of Fear features Sutton, bassist Bob Desaluniers, and drummer Robert Comitz, and they settled on a sound that borrows a little bit from everywhere the band has been before. "Wait!" and "Ruined My Life"'s catchy, self-deprecating wit gives the album indie pop underpinnings, but a lot of punk attitude roughs up these songs. Things never get quite as raw or unhinged as they did on the Blood Trilogy EP, but "We're So Ugly" and the gleefully raunchy "Savage" show Hornet Leg haven't deserted nasty rock entirely. Sutton's slightly slurred, (mostly) charmingly off-key vocals suggest a young Mick Jagger, Mark E. Smith, or K Records founder Calvin Johnson at different times, which only adds to his band's versatility. They sound especially fun and convincing as a '60s beat combo, covering Larry & the Blue Notes' morbidly mischievous "Night of the Phantom," the Who's "Circles" (which they slow down to a hypnotic grind), and the Luv'd Ones' "I'm Leaving You" with all the spontaneity of a raw live set. Arty tangents like "Snake Oil" and "My Baby" show that the band still doesn't like to stick with one sound for too long, and the moments when Sutton's voice wanders too far away from the key of any given song make Ribbon of Fear an occasionally challenging listen. However, no matter how rough the album's edges get, there's still something pretty appealing about Hornet Leg's willingness to take any sound that inspires them and make it their own.

Hornet Leg's many incarnations include a four-track solo project, an art-noise duo, and a punk trio, but Chris Sutton is the man behind every version of the band. Sutton, who also played in bands including Dub Narcotic Sound System, C.O.C.O., Spider & the Webs, and Nudity, started recording under the Hornet Leg name in 2003. Sutton envisioned Hornet Leg as a band that could play anywhere, at any time and with any lineup, and the first version featured just Sutton and his four-track. Writing and...
