SPECTRUMS "Thanks For Your Kind Words” C17 (Self-Titled Recordings)

“Taking inspiration from the Chicago school of post-rock, Tangerine Dream, and John Carpenter's soundtracks, the trio adopts a keyboardist's mindset with guitars firmly in hand.”

Man, I must be going deaf, because I am not hearing ANY keyboards whatsoever on this tape, or post-rock time-signature changes, for that matter. Maybe their live show is different? The two guitarists definitely have some great chemistry, and their tones mince well (see: Sonic Youth), but I really don’t get why there aren’t at least some sparse vocals to flesh these tracks out more. Am I missing something here? Judge for yourself via the links below.
