Reviews posted this week at 75orLess.

Throbbing Gristle - Part Two. The Endless Not (Mute)

The 25-year wait for the new Throbbing Gristle album is over. Part Two. The Endless Not isn't nearly as subversive or confrontational as earlier recordings, and it seems the godparents of industrial music have mellowed with age. They do retain a signature sound; a pulsating, dark dirge spiked with noisy loops and saturated with murky ambiance. The music is at times complex and almost pretty, but absent is the challenging aural assault that once earned Throbbing Gristle the title "Wreckers of Civilization." - j. daltry
Released 04.03.2007

Sonya Cotton - Out of the Ocean (self released)

I expect a lot from my sophomores, and Sonya Cotton gets an A. To her second album of sorrowful folk- the lyrics evoke loss and yearning- she has added piano, percussion, and backing vocals here and there. I wish we could clone her, so everyone can have Sonya doing their harmonies; the end of "The Dying Light" has achingly beautiful ones. Her voice is just lovely, as if Karen Peris, Natalie Merchant and Judy Collins mixed theirs together to create one that wasn't babyish or throaty or reedy. Just lovely. - meredith
Released 04.03.2007

Porcupine Tree - Fear of a Blank Planet (We Put Out/Atlantic)

Porcupine Tree's 56th album (or something like that) is a gallery of moody, almost supernatural prog rock with skyscraper-high songs that pour from an always-on faucet of beauty and throbbing heaviness. Not familiar with Steve Wilson and Co.? Well, Alex Lifeson (Rush) and Robert Fripp (King Crimson) make appearances and while the 'Tree shares only the "prog" tag with those bands, they could've toured together in 1981. If you choose to navigate the Seven Seas of Porcupine Tree, begin by hoisting your sails here. - jason m.
Released 04.24.2007

Goon Moon - Licker's Last Leg (Ipecac)

Goon Moon features Jeordie White (Marilyn Manson, Nine Inch Nails) and Chris Goss (Masters of Reality). The songs on Licker's Last Leg feature disturbing yet beautiful lyrics combined with an interesting mix of industrial, desert rock, and other unusual musical styles. Each track has its own unique personality and the album as a whole offers pleasing, and sometimes surprising treats for the listener's ears. This is some of the best and most creative work I've heard in quite some time. - j.p.
Released 05.08.2007

Voxtrot - ST (Playlouder/Beggars Group)

Coulda. Shoulda. Woulda. For a couple of years now, Voxtrot have promised some great and not-so-great things through a string of eps that ranged in quality from OMG to WTF. Now it's clear the band really needed the space provided by a full lp to stretch out and keep some of those promises. Ramesh Srivastava's previously direct songwriting style is obscured at times, but that's far from a bad thing. In actuality, it shows Voxtrot is a band with many moods never revealed before by the one-dimensional nature of those eps. They could, should and finally did. - paul
Released 05.22.2007

Finally, 75orLess Records released Fred Kendal Abong's "The Hand Trembler" today in a silkscreened edition of 150 copies. 14 tracks in just around 45 minutes. Only $6.00 postpaid. You can order a copy over at 75orLess Records.

It's a reasonable question. The idea was born during our daily music chats, while discussing reviews we'd read. There was only one thing we consistently agreed on: they were too long. It seemed the point of how the music sounded and whether or not it was good was lost in an overlong mess of lyric quotes, personal accounts and a seemingly desperate attempt to fulfill a word count. Eventually someone said, "It's gotten to the point where if you can't say it in 75 words or less, you should shut the eff up". Within a week, 75orless.com was born. The best part about our limit is its reversal of typical music reviews. We limit the amount of words we use, and are not required to reach a number.

Welcoming electronic, hip-hop, indie, folk, punk, disco, pop, cock rock, math rock, brit pop, nu gaze, blues, garage, country, new new wave, rockabilly, idm, crust, techno, grindcore and all other music submissions. Where words with 2 letters or fewer do not count.
