Love Ends Disaster!
"Stories for the Dislocated" CDEP
Genres: indie rock
July 25 - 31 2005
Whoa. Love Ends Disaster! have recently been racking up
good press by the boatload, drawing comparisons to The Fall and
scenemates Bloc Party. While Stores for the Dislocated
only offers a five song glimpse of the band, everything certainly
seems to be in working order. This is exciting, angular,
absolutely intense indie rock/post-punk stuff, taking major
cues from Gang of Four. The songs are complex but
incredibly melodic, making for a hip, cutting-edge sound.
"Warning: Robots" introduces a certain epic feel that
really works well for the band - I notice some Interpol in the
vocals, as well. The tense energy of "TV" is a perfect
example of what Love Ends Disaster! is about, though I prefer
the spasmodic tunefulness of "Ginko Disco," which reminds me
subtly of the French Kicks. Overall, I've found Stories
for the Dislocated to be an extremely impressive EP from a bunch
of guys I had never heard of before. If Love Ends Disaster! have
the chops to create something like this, I can't imagine how
incredible their debut album will be.
