Faux EP

Nolens Volens = Bjork + Rope or Bullets + The Anniversary


It is obvious that Nolens Volens has a wide range of musical tastes—it’s probably a good idea they didn’t try to mix them all together simultaneously. Instead, they line up synth-pop ranging from spastically blippy to catchy next to garage rock guitars next to ethereal almost-drone montages which make for some very interesting song structures. Sparse, sometimes Dada-ish lyrics rarely find a place among the bizarreness but are well thought-out when they do. Oh yeah, and the CD case is upholstered in fur.
