Times New Viking, 'Born Again Revisited'

Critical Mass
Label:

by David Bevan

Times New Viking have truly mastered the no-fi game: No matter how they defile their sound (with razor blades, broken glass, tape hiss), they make sure there's bubblegum at the center. Here, TNV intensify the sweet and the abrasive. Mind the gap: "Martin Luther King Day" recalls Built to Spill at their most deliciously crunchy, while the ruckus of opener "Born Again Revisited" borders on the unlistenable. But standout "No Time, No Hope" finds a spectacular middle ground, a harmonized space where the band's menace makes perfect pop sense.
