Album Review

Die! Die! Die!
Harmony Smalltown America

Die! Die! Die! - achtung New Zealander!
As Oblivious Oblivion kicks this album off it sounds a bit like Dunedin’s Die! Die! Die! are having trouble making up their minds whether they want to be early 90s shoegazers or go back a further 10 years to deliver metallic post-punk hectoring. Then, on the title track they go and pull off the unlikely trick of managing to meld both together successfully. So it threatens to be a little disappointing when for much of the rest of the album they plump pretty firmly for the post-punk option.

But they make a damn good fist of it, employing their hard edged noise to the service of some more than serviceable pop-tinged racket. And as abruptly as it went away the more complex noise comes back – Twitching Sunshine carried along on an insistent static drone and Get Back playing out over a backing that morphs from yowling mbv guitar to circular saw noise and back again. It’s a thoroughly fine way to round off an impressively promising album.
