Album Review

Denver-based post-rock duo the Very Hush Hush make their full-length debut (following three increasingly complex EPs) with 2006's Mourir C'est Facile, an epic-scaled album triangulated somewhere between Swervedriver-style shoegazing, the mammoth art-noise of Godspeed You Black Emperor!, and the chilly distancing effects of Radiohead. The album is best heard as a whole: when the songs are heard individually, the band's antecedents loom a little too large, but over the course of the album as a whole, the sense that multi-instrumentalists Peter Rappmund and Grant Outerbridge are merely talented mimics is blunted by their canny sense of arrangement and dynamics. Some tricks are used a few too many times — nearly all of Rappmund's vocals are so heavily processed that it sounds like he's singing through a CB radio during a thunderstorm — but the duo ring enough changes on their basic stand-offish art-rock template to make Mourir C'est Facile intriguing rather than merely opaque and abstract. Furthermore, the sudden appearance of a crunchy little three-minute pop song like "Every Little" from underneath the sheets of distortion and drones just makes the listener pay closer attention to reveal all the half-hidden hooks sprinkled throughout these ten lengthy songs.

Best Album Ever...

This record was obviously composed with much creativity, love and awesomness!!! It will rock your world in ways you didn't know were possible. can't wait until the next TVHH record comes out, because I know that will be a whole new kind of rad.
