Negative Houses

Trouble In Mind

Not In Stock. Buy now and we will order it in for you.

Negative Houses is FACS' debut recording; an abstraction of their former outfit, even more minimal and bare than what came before. Negative Houses approaches the stark, gothy post-punk previously perfected more rhythmically and abstract than in Disappears, with Leger's motorik, machine-like drumming taking the forefront (see the tunes Skylarking and Others) and van Herik's guitar alternating between slashes of dissonant ambience and percussive accent.

Case switches from guitar to bass in FACS, adding an economical throb to the band's drive on songs like Just a Mirror and the album's centerpiece, the near nine-minute, sax-soaked tour-de-force Houses Breathing, whose electric heartbeat lumbers forward, sounding like an outtake from Cold Storage Studios circa 1979. For fans of Explosions In the Sky, Disappears, This Heat, PIL, Oneida and Can.
