TMIM staff, in and around the interweb: The Silent Ballet has published my review of Double Handsome Dragon’s self-titled fourth album. Here’s a short bit:
The track builds momentum throughout its second half, trading in global politics for astronaut synthesizer loops. An alarm sounds during the hard-hitting climax, and the impact is hair-raising. “Los Diablos Del Espacio” resembles a countdown to annihilation, and makes clear that the threat to mankind isn’t coming from outer space. It is a masterful bit of apocalyptic songwriting. The use of guitar, laser-sharp electronica and rhythm section here is downright orchestral.
The album is excellent, my favorite review as a Silent Ballet contributor yet. “Are We Not the Future of This Nation” shortlists for track of the year. Yes, they’re that good. Stream it right here:
