Hookworms - Microshift mp3 album

Hookworms ‎– Microshift. Genre: Electronic, Rock. referencing Microshift, LP, Album, WIGLP423. Not the most original band in the world, reminiscent of Bear In Heaven or Passion Pit. This album is solid, though. The vinyl sounds pretty good, but I doubt it sounds much different than the CD. Reply Notify me Helpful.

The band’s third album, Microshift, is similarly an exercise in relentless forward motion and joyous abandon. But the means they use to achieve those ends have changed dramatically: Like the reformed partier who now gets their endorphin rush from morning jogs instead of amphetamines, Hookworms have traded in chaos for clarity. As we get deeper into Microshift, it becomes clear that Hookworms’ evolution from unruly noisemakers to art-pop sophisticates isn’t purely aesthetic-it’s a rebuke of the male aggression that guitar-based rock’n’roll has traditionally encouraged, and an embrace of greater sensitivity and emotional honesty.

Genre: Neo-Psychedelia. On their third album, the Leeds band shed some distortion to reveal powerful vocals and tough pop melodies – without sacrificing any intensity.

Returning with their third studio album, amidst a back catalogue of live releases, cassette EP’s and singles come the Leeds/Halifax five-piece set, Hookworms. Noise rock, drone rock, space rock, neo-psychedelia; call them what you will, but Hookworms have created something truly special with this album. As Negative Space takes its opening form to open up the album, we’re greeted with glitches, pops and loops usually heard amidst the computerised chaos of Aphex Twin’s work (particularly his most recent Syro ), which could comfortably have been an influence here.

The Hum is the second studio album by British rock band Hookworms, released on 10 November 2014 on Weird World, an imprint of Domino. All tracks written by Hookworms. JN - Drums, percussion. JW - Guitars, sleeves and design.

Leeds-based psych-rock outfit Hookworms have announced a new album. On February 2, the group will release Microshift via Domino. The album was recorded and written after the band had to rebuild their Suburban Home Studio after it was flooded in 2015. The first track to be released from the album is Negative Space, which has a slow electronic build into a heady krautrock progression. Listen to the new track below via its animated video. All of our records are to an extent about mental health, says the band’s MJ of the album in a statement.

Microshift is a vast and extremely bold sonic leap forward. The second is Hookworms’ melodic facility. Easy to miss amid the tumultuous, echoing din of their debut, Pearl Mystic, and its 2014 successor, The Hum, it suddenly finds itself in the spotlight. Opener is a tight, tough pop song underpinned by a Kraftwerk-ish rhythm track that gradually unfurls into a joyous climax; closer Shortcomings has a fabulous chorus; The Soft Season is beautiful in a way that nothing they’ve recorded before has been: spectral, and spectacular with it.
