Reseña de álbum

Red Animal War use imaginative arrangements, earthy guitar textures, a strong melodic sense, and pure rhythmic muscle to create an exciting variation on indie post-punk. The overall flavor of Black Phantom Crusades is reminiscent of D.C. post-hardcore (Burning Airlines), but the band incorporates some unusual instrumentation (saxophone, xylophone, piano) into their sound to make it a bit more varied than most of their peers. "Mouse" and "Jambalaya," in particular, employ particularly adventurous rhythmic ideas and unpredictable, dynamic twists and turns in the arrangements, resulting in a fresh take on melodic hardcore aggression.

And The Critics Say...

"Ever wonder what Jawbox would have sounded like had they lasted to their sixth or seventh album? Red Animal War's 'Black Phantom Crusades' may yield a safe guesstimate to such a query. In all seriousness, Red Animal War aren't that derivative. Even so, I'll be darned if they don't espouse a healthy dollop of that band's challenging instrumental interplay and tightly-would dissonance, and if Justin Wilson isn't a dead ringer for J. Robbins, I don't know who is. Matt Pittman and Wilson's clamorous dueling-guitars almost take a backseat to Brian Pho's incisively clangy bass-lines, to wonderful effect, particularly on Mouse, amid other moments of brilliance, including When Fat Pigs Fly and When I Get The Feeling. Whether Red Animal War realizes it or not, they've filled a gap, while raising the bar in the post-hardcore sweepstakes to boot." - Big Takeover "Red Animal War continue to defy expectations. With Black Phantom Crusades, their cautious blend of Jawbox-ism, wire-y guitar grinds, jazz-influenced chords and lyrical bitterness has hurled them straight out of any indie rock genre stereotype. How this band mastered a sound so creative, so angular yet warm, and so technical yet reckless in just two records is beyond me. One thing's for sure; Red Animal War have become Deep Elm's premier act. Black Phantom Crusades is not only the label's most unique offering to date, it's a victory in the often-regurgitated indie rock battlefield." - Lollipop "Black Phantom Crusades from Red Animal War is a massive album that rides on waves of shimmering D.C. - influenced guitar, impassioned vocals and powerful, complex melodies. It's political without being pedantic and aggressive without being pushy. Genre-splicing is hinted at but never fully exposed, like some mutant that resides in the dirty back room. Every song is fully realized and polished without losing its energy or drive, never stumbling over its complex rhythmic structures. Standout tracks like Straight Lines For Construction Workers are tight and catchy, furious in demeanor and calculated in execution. What sets Black Phantom Crusades apart is its clarity, both in its production and palatably self-righteous disposition. Excellent mood-driven post-punk from Red Animal War, this is definitely worth checking out." - Shredding Paper "Red Animal War's brainy song structures, Hot Water Music-esque rolling basslines and malicious fretboard melees certainly justifies the hype after reading review upon review heralding them as this decade's equivalent to Jawbox. It's ridiculous that such talent is being kept on the down low while the Taking Back Sundays of the world swing the pendulum away from this brand of textured songwriting. Red Animal War is slowly recapturing the post-punk flag from the tilted-trucker-cap-wearing poseurs, and they definitely earned this jaded music writer's stamp of approval." - Splendid "Red Animal War is in a really big hurry to show the indie rock world that they're taking over. Very rarely does an album come along that exhausts my vocabulary of positive adjectives, but Black Phantom Crusades truly offers so much. It has some of the most compelling technical songwriting, decorous melodies that make each song better with each listen, unsurpassable lyrics and the studio quality...oh the studio quality! It may be the finest thing ever released on Deep Elm Records. It took more than ten listens for me to pick out a favorite song, but I finally settled on Gattaca. Great song, even better of the highlights of the year." - Punk International

sprouty and springy

"Straight Lines for Construction Workers" was the first of RAW's songs I heard and I was struck by how much it sounded like Prefab Sprout (one of my favorite bands, btw...check out their album "Swoon", produced by Thomas Dolby (?)) in every way--the interesting, jazz-inflected minor chord changes, the odd lyrics that don't detract from the moodiness of the music. Then I checked out "Jambalaya" and was surprised how different that was (and unique in its own right). Cool stuff! Oh, and "And So It Begins with Bombs" is really strong, too.

The indie rock outfit Red Animal War came together in 1999 with musical friends Justin Wilson (guitar/vocals), Jeff Wilganowski (drums), Brian Pho (bass), and Matt Pitman (guitar). They've perfected their emocore style for something charming and desirable, allowing Deep Elm to take interest in the band and inking them a deal in late 1999. They spent most of 2000 recording in Deedle's Room in Austin, TX, recording what would become a full-length studio effort. The fruit of those sessions...
