Album Review

Creating a new tradition of strong, possessed lead female singers, Get Hustle is part of the post-hardcore zeitgeist boiling in the underground in 2002. Like Love Life, Glass Candy, and the Black Heart Procession, the band is formed of former hardcore superstars turned saturnine, Nick Cave-loving adults. This Dream Eagle EP takes the dramatic, confrontational theater of the band's live shows and channels it straight into the speakers. Organs, pianos, and unnamed buzzes sound all around Valentine Hussar's percussive, feisty vocals. On "Silver Dollar" this is augmented by an endless shuffle beat and a tambourine taking on a totemistic flare. A solo, bluesy warble segues between this and "Are You Ready," a moody, Satie-inspired instrumental piano piece recalling some of the material on Amore del Tropico, the recently released Black Heart Procession album. This boils into "Lost Cities of Gold," an almost Sun Ra-like polyrhythm filled with monotone keys and Hussar's sensuous moans. It must be something in the San Diego water because almost nothing in the East Coast underground taps this much emotional depth or sonic inventiveness.
