Totally sick and brutal \m/ \m/

"i've got this album and two other polvo albums: shapes and today's active lifestyles. shapes is experimental and sounds kind of eastern/psychedelic, and today's active lifestyles is just really good. however, i'd have to say exploded drawing is the best album i've heard from polvo. it starts off with fast canoe, which has a really catchy riff and chord progression. bridesmaid's blues reminds me of the kids in the hall theme by shadowy men on a shadowy planet, but this song rocks in it's own way. feather of forgiveness is a favorite of mine, the lyrics sound very personal and bizarre, and he just gets really weird at the end when he starts singing "i wanna cover you with flowers of forgiveness, i want to TOUCH you with the feather of forgiveness, i wanna wash you in a river of forgiveness, i want to wrap you in the fabric of forgiveness, i wanna put you in a LIGHT that will hurt your eyes..."
exploded drawing is not lacking in the exotic riff department, there's plenty of noise and harmonics and wammy bar discord to go around for any indie kid that's into sonic youth, dinosaur jr, or pavement. there are lots of catchy hooks mixed with experimental indie-punk weirdness, which indeed posses a "math" quality in its delivery.
if you like these guys, be sure to check out shudder to think, shellac, helium, unwound, slint, archers of loaf, modest mouse, chavez, and the other bands i mentioned."
Polvo are missed.

"Polvo: Lots of interesting guitar sounds, time changes, lyrics that make you think. I really enjoy this entire album, but it isn't an "easy" listen. If you do not like to be challenged by your music, do not listen to Polvo. If you're looking for a type of music you've never really heard before, music which will leave you feeling different than before you listened to it, than this is the album for you!"

"if you want to know what someone means when they call a band experimental, throw this here CD into the player and hold on. the lead guitarists use of the slider and chords is so very interesting. it almost sounds as if he's polaying a rubber band the way the notes bend and sway. hypnotic and beautiful. the last song and the first song so beautifully start and end the album with the raw drums and down the hall vocals. i suggest you get it and expand your musical forte'. in the name of the one who made you tick. much peace...enjoy."
