Album Review

Toronto electro-rockers Holy F**k are clearly banking on the continued rise of satellite radio, because they're just not gonna get that far in a broadcast world still under FCC restraints. The eight lengthy songs on their debut album are largely improvised, with two drummers (one of them, surprisingly, Glenn Milchem from the languid AAA country-rockers Blue Rodeo) and three keyboardists creating completely rhythm-oriented instrumental grooves that are introduced, percolate around for five to eight minutes with little variation, and then recede. So melody and lyricism are entirely beside the point here, but what makes Holy F**k something far more interesting than the average LCD Soundsystem knockoff is the album's thrillingly live feel. In a style of music that's mostly created by pressing buttons and manipulating touch screens, the drummer-powered, live-in-the-studio feel of Holy F**k provides both musical excitement and textural variety missing from most similar electro-dance albums.

Great Sound

I wish people would get over the name. As somebody said before me: we aren't 5 years old. As for the band, I think that to truly appreciate the music you have to seem them live. I saw them in New York City a few days ago when they opened for Wolf Parade and at first I was confused but by the end I was loving it. The band members use toy keyboards, a 35mm film synchronizer, and even a cordless phone. The person who left a review before me talking about ACID had no idea what he was talking about because they don't use any computers or drum machines. I truly love the raw polyrythmic sound that they can produce with such primative instruments.

Pretty Cool!

What don't you morons get? THIS ALBUM WAS MADE WITHOUT BEAT MACHINES! It is guys playing guitar, drums, and various instruments to come up with a whole new groove. How bout you do a little research before you leave a stupid reveiw to bring a score down.

Good Stuff

This is a sweet CD. Amazingly rich texture, sophisticated rhythms, and catchy blips. It is extremely impressive that it was all created with toys. NO COMPUTERS AT ALL. Fantastic. I hope you enjoy this as much as I do.


Formed: 2004 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '00s, '10s

The Toronto-based electronic collective Holy Fuck were formed in 2004 by Graham Walsh and Brian Borcherdt. Described as "blip-hoppers" and "a shabbily dressed Kraftwerk," Holy Fuck began creating lo-fi electronic noise music with old analog musical and non-musical instruments, including a 35mm film synchronizer. Without the use of laptops or other instruments common to early 21st century electronic music, they strove to re-create their chaotic, Casio-driven live presence on their albums, the first...
