Amoeba Review

11/24/2014

Cymbals Eat Guitars’ haven’t lost any of their radioactive intensity on their third album and first in three years. If anything, it’s just been amplified over the years. Joseph D’Agostino’s vocals cut like barbed wire, thin but jagged, on expansive opener “Jackson.” “Warning” is a quick flood of watery guitars and spit vocals. The band pulls out the harmonica and psychobilly guitars for the rushing “XR.” But touring over the years has clearly made the New York band more comfortable in their skins, and as such, they allow the songs to billow out but never get too comfortable, on extended pieces like the dynamic, melodic “Place Names” and eerily beautiful “Laramie.” Their songwriting remains tight, though, as the band can pull out a folksy character study like “Child Bride” and log it in nicely between the more massive tracks like swirling shoegazing closer “2 Hip Soul.” They’re not reinventing indie rock here, but along with N.Y.C. compatriots Parquet Courts, Cymbals Eat Guitars pull off the feat of making the genre feel alive and relevant again on LOSE.
