Album Review

Unhistories is the type of album that's easier to appreciate than to actually enjoy — it's easy to admire Singer's ability to deconstruct rock music to a pulp, with atonal shards, off-time pentatonic scales, and disjointed clashing strums. Barely holding everything together is a winding falsetto harmony line veering in and out of the dissonance. There's a certain charm to loose music, as when the bass player locks in on a guitar part and the drummer is doing his own thing, fluttering off time, while the other guitarist noodles away in a completely different world.

Call it no wave, call it freak funk, call it avant-garde brilliance; people who respect bands merely for their artistic sensibilities and originality will find a lot to like in Singer.
