LAKE OF FALCONS
LAKE OF FALCONS
BEEP REPAIRED

Northwestern trio Lake of Falcons play the kind of music Fugazi would if they had gone shoegazing, as this 13-track collection straddles the line between mopey indie rock and slightly anguished post hardcore. “Another Mutated Doll” acts as a prime example of how this unit’s dream sequencer goes awry, as the initial lush arrangement gives way to a thunderously swirling mid-section before calming back into the trippy groove. Channeling as much Pearl Jam as Paw and simultaneously summoning the ghosts of both Quicksand and Hum, songs like the bouncy “Black and Beige” and the caustic “Big Sam” sounds as if two entirely different bands contributed to this eponymous disc, and this versatile clan wouldn’t want it any other way. If you yearn for a potpourri of punk with chunks of imminent indie rock, check this disc out.
