Sian Alice Group
Not too long after participating in The Social Registry's social club 7" series, Sian Alice Group lay their full length LP, 59.59 on us and surpass the expectations that have since been building. Though the group has quite a few pedigrees that surround them; adding Douglas Hart of Jesus and Mary Chain to their ranks and collaborating with members of Spiritualized and Gang Gang Dance, these don't really give any indication of the sound. The band's sound doesn't really bring to mind any of these collaborators. Built on a basis of spacy synths and plaintive almost crooning female vocals, the songs move from glassy calmness to propulsive yet extremely controlled rhythms and terse shards of guitar. And though the songs may seem a bit dissimilar, the album flows, tied together with the constant power of singer Sian Ahern's vocals and the natural prowess of the compiled players. Keep an ear out for this when it becomes available February 19th.
