Audionom, 'Retrospektiv' (Kemado)

Retrospektiv
Critical Mass
Label: Kemado

by Aaron Burgess

Countrymates Silverbullit beat them into stores by years, and like-minded Norwegians 120 Days hit the shelves months ago, but Swedish repetitive-motion rockers Audionom claim their own market share with this career overview that's just as indebted to early kraut rock as it is to the European post-punk that eclipsed it. Audionom believe that if a riff's good enough to fill one bar, it's good enough for an entire song; and after the two-note instrumental opener, "Ljusets Krigare," they shift into a Joy Division-esque antipop monotone that, even at its harshest, is more soothing than stirring.
