10 Songs, 48 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

The cover of Myth Takes, art-funkers !!!’s third album, suits the music perfectly: Illustrations of a woodsy party with folks and animals mingling, its packed, phantasmagorical style is the equivalent of what the group is doing these days. Seemingly building songs from the inside out, groove first, !!! aim at filling every space. “Must Be the Moon,” a lyrically detailed recollection of a one-night stand, is the most overtly accessible track. “Sweat Life” hangs its impressionistic observations on an intense vamp that grows into an almost industrial stack of noise, while “Heart of Hearts” takes firm control of a Gary Glitter-style stomp. The Sacramento octet’s most experimental album yet, Myth Takes suggests plenty of new directions for their sound.
