In further proof that Meneguar never sleep, the band release The In Hour on their own Woodsist imprint only a few months after their great offering on Troubleman last year. I've been a fan of the interplay of styles between the Meneguar/Woods/Shepherds contingent and the rough hewn edges of the latter two have certainly bled into the former on this album. Not nearly as ragged as that Tone Banks cassette that appeared here a few months ago, but they've definitely eschewed polish for intensity and immediate emotion. The songs on The In Hour retain the charm of Meneguar's typical catchiness but filter it through the Woods' broken tape aesthetics and Shepherd's sense of experimentalism (though nowhere near their level of repetition). I've been waiting for Meneguar to strip things back a bit and the payout is some of their best yet. Pick this one up; the artwork is definitely a match for the quality of the material.
