Swan Lake - Beast Moans

Rating: 4.8/10
Modern Music Review
Indie Rock
This new band features Daniel Bejar (Destroyer, New Pornographers), Spencer Krug (Wolf Parade, Sunset Rubdown), and Carey Mercer (Frog Eyes).

When I heard this one, positively i got excited. At the same time, there is a truth that you shouldn't get excited if it's the first sight. This is the rule of being a mature person. Think twice
before make a decision! Isn't it right? if it isn't right for you, it's hard to avoid from the mistakes which always wait right time to trick you.

So "Beast Moans" (2006) can trick you with its two attractive indie cake "Widow's Walk", "Nubile Days" at the start. "Widow's Walk" makes you think about some improved Radiohead song. Immediately afterwards, "City calls" appears , and paralyses your desire which has an important rule for continuing listen. Not only is "City calls" outlandish at times, but it also causes to stop whole cd. The mistake is excessive noises and strange backround tunes which are usually pointless. With "A Venue Called Rubella" it's getting worse and worse. This time not only the complicated tunes, also adding some repetition during one minute 10 x "A Venue Called Rubella"= exhausted listener. The result is going to be an disappointed listener. Sometimes there are good loops to hear but it's not a deliverance. Because if you consider the other records, you'll see they've got some good tunes too. So it's not right to give every album positive, positive and positive because of two or three listenable melody.

If you could survive at the chamber of three nonsense melody (City Calls, A Venue Called Rubella, All Fires), maybe it's time to hear a good tune. Again the results are too spotty but "The Partisan..." is what i wanted to hear."Bluebird" touches you, along with being desired, its changable atmosphere can also be magical to your ear. So this makes "Beast Moans" a buried indie rock album. As a footnote, if you're kind of person who don't listen comprehensible music, so you may like it. What i meant is that it's imposible to listen this record loudly. I really adore noisy songs but senseless songs.

After all, it's not energetic as Wolf Parade, not clear like Sunset Rubdown's "Shut Up I Am Dreaming" or not gloomy (Frog Eyes), it's mostly out of touch, and also spinning around complex noisy melodies.
MM picks: Widow's Walk, The Partisan But He's Got To Know
Mp3: All Fires, The Freedom
