Far-Out Fangtooth's debut showed the promise of a band locked into a Sonic Youth-indebted raw 90's rock. It was enjoyable but had room for the band to come into themselves as songwriters and that's precisely what they do on the follow up Borrowed Time. Glossing up the production and graduating further into the folds of shoegaze and psychedelia, the album seethes with a dark current that rolls along the surface like fog. They utilize a tightly wound clang and percussive rumble to propel the album's storm of keys and guitars caught in a sonic mesh of feedback and swirl. The overall vicious growl of noise paired with the breathy intensity of their vocal delivery sets the tone for Borrowed Time to build its gothic-psych pillars to new heights. Ultimately the album ends up a rainy day necessity that often trembles with pent up energy and pays off well when it unleashes like a torrent on the listener.
