Amoeba Review

12/19/2016

A lot of current rock bands seem content to not do much more than play dress up with sounds of the past. Preoccupations are the anxiety-ridden, cold and foreboding sound of the present. The album of 2016 for me, because more so than anything else, it sounds like 2016. - Alex M, Hollywood


09/14/2016

The Canadian post-punk band formerly known as Viet Cong are back with a less controversial name, Preoccupations, and a new album, which is also named Preoccupations. As can be expected for the genre, you’ll hear The Cure-style guitars, Echo and the Bunnymen-esque washes of sound, and Ian Curtis-inspired vocals. Which isn’t to say that the album is a mere retread; in fact, it’s full of surprises, from the cinematic orchestration of “Memory” to the delayed, suddenly abrasive intro to “Anxiety.” The album features moments of blistering, brutal beauty, hypnotic riffs, and melancholy melodies. It’s a familiar sound, veering successfully into an uneasy, new direction.
