Atypical rhythms coupled with driving riffs and dreamy piano catch the ears on South II, the second studio album from
ambientpost-rockband48V.It’sas if Sigur Ros and Por tishead joined forces to create a woozy soundscape with a hint of scattered electronica. But does it all come together?
The first four tracks plough the same ethereal furrow that tends
to pale upon repeat listening. Thankfully,itstartstogetmore intense with ‘Tiger Huang Jumped From A Window’, at which point twinkling guitar alternates with sparse drumbeats, followed by two minutes of prog-rock. And ‘Send
A Letter’ is polished by atmospheric female vocals. Closing track ‘Chat’ perhaps sums up this album best:
it is essentially a nicely composed, bouncy guitar jam, but so loose as to make you wonder: is that all?
