Album Review

Norway has long, unremitting winters with no sunshine, leaving the four lads who make up 120 Days with a lot of time on their hands. This quartet used their time wisely by making music, taking drugs and probably listening to a lot of old Kraftwerk, New Order and Cure records. With three battered keyboards and an old drum machine, the band creates a gloomy, tooth grinding, sinister wall of noise perfect for all-night raves on the dark side of the moon. Like the '80s dance bands and '70s Krautrock groups they obviously admire, they've found a way to make their regimented drum tracks swing, adding layers of thick fuzzy guitar noise and gasping, heart attack bass to provide some rock credibility. Ådne Meisfjord's desperate shrieks of anguish bring to mind Robert Smith's caterwauling at its most frenzied, but good luck understanding the lyrics, which are presumably in English. The vocals are buried deep in the mix, but their incomprehensible shriek exudes a kind of bracing, desperate beauty. 120 Days still lean pretty heavily on their influences: "Come Out, Come Down, Fade Out, Be Gone" sounds like Kraftwerk sitting in with Joy Division, "Sleepwalking" is pure Cure and "Keep on Smiling" could be a sexier, more menacing version of Depeche Mode, but their ominous squall is delivered with a frenzied energy that makes their relentless drone promising.

Vice records does it again

I stumbled across 120 Days on Myspace and have been listening to them nonstop ever since. They have a very unique sound - guitar melodies like the Smiths mixed with some of the electro-synth of New Order or early Depeche Mode. There's an incredible intensity in the lead singer's voice and each song unfolds slowly to a pulsing climax. Take a listen to the myspace songs (two of which didn't make this album) and then give the full-length a try. you won't be disappointed.

Pot and NASA

This is a band that is very much fueled on outer space and "substance". What would happen if U2 really ever tried? What would happen if they mixed in members of The Cure with the Black Rebel Motorcycle Club producing? This CD would be a hint. 120 Days has created a very genius album that is destined to the lay the groundwork for many things to come. Let's keep our fingers crossed. If you're a fan of this band then check out the podcast "Faction-6".

Gold, Jerry! Gold!

I was at a Ratatat concert on April 3, 2007 at UCSD and 120 days opened for them. In my opinion, 120 Days stole the show (as good at Ratatat is). I was immediately reminded of The Cure, New Order, and U2. I dont think I've heard another. I spoke with the lead singer after the show, and he told me his influences were Velvet Undeground, The Smiths, Daft Punk (I think) and a few others. A+ band.
