worriedaboutsatan - EP02 (self released)

The UK band, worriedaboutsatan, has a very unique and unexpected sound. Gavin Miller and Tom Ragsdale skillfully blend elements of post-rock, intelligent electronica, and noise, with a layer of minimal, tightly mastered beats. Sounds intriguing? You bet! The fusion of genres is usually a dangerous territory if not executed correctly, but worriedaboutsatan surprise me over and over with their perfect control of instruments, programming technique, and dynamic range. The tracks on EP02 seamlessly merge into one another, and are best absorbed in a single thirty-plus-minute journey... that is until your senses are interrupted by Paul Marshall's vocals... and the beat picks up again. The band is taking on the scene singlehandedly, filling one order at a time (also available on iTunes), so grab a piece of history before they explode in a kaleidoscope of colors! For the likes of The Album Leaf, Kashiwa Daisuke and World's End Girlfriend. Favorite tracks: Relative Minors, Morwenna (Part 2) and The Last Song (First Song Remix).
