TRUE NORTH:
We Speak in Code: CD
I saw these guys open up for Fugazi a while ago. They weren't the band that Fugazi took on tour with them to open, just the local band that gets to open for the band that gets to tour with Fugazi. Pretty far down on the totem pole, is what I'm getting at. Anyway, they left me with the strange sensation of wanting the opening band's set to last longer and the even stranger sensation of wanting the band opening for Fugazi's set to last longer. Then, I didn't hear anything from them again for over a year, so when I saw this album, I was stoked. The first time I listened to it, I liked it, but it didn't strike me as anything that special. I may have even passed on it if I hadn't enjoyed their set so much. With each listen, though, this album gets better. True North is definitely a Fugazi progeny. They have that edge and that sense of disjointedness. The singer even sounds a little bit like Guy. The music isn't quite as complex or polished as Fugazi, but the songs tend to carry a higher rockin' factor. And now that this album has spent some time in my high rotation, I'm starting to like everything about it from the tempo changes and methodic nuances to the photos in the CD booklet (including one photo of the killer Gainesville record collective, the Wayward Council). Highly recommended. –sean (No Idea, PO Box 14636, Gainesville, FL 32604)
