Tracklist: Thank You - Birth Reunion

Baltimore trio Thank You, who release fourth album Golden Worry on Thrill Jockey on the 25th (US date), share a lot with our own Islet - largely instrumental, all three playing a bit of everything, very percussive, keen on subtly shifting speed, fond of outbreaks of collapsing guitar and tinnitus organ. Crossbreeding polyrhythms, sheet metal sculpted noise breaks and threatening chants are the order of the day, borrowing ideologies from Pere Ubu, This Heat and Holy Fuck, brushing into No Wave and motorik. Avant-Kraut propulsion rarely sounded so exciting. And it's clearly not even a stretch to organise synchronised dances to them.
