Quant - Crossies Count

Crossies Count

Quant = (Modest Mouse + Jane’s Addiction)valium


Quant set out to make the most subtly-smart album ever and almost succeeded—or maybe I’m just not smart (patient) enough. The songs are all well and good with intricate instrumentation and thoughtful lyrics but they just go on and on and on—listening to this is like staring at the Salt Flats, except not as monotonous as there are plenty of builds and crashes. They’re all slow and melodious and earnest though, and if you’ve nothing to do but brood and ponder, Crossies Count is your soundtrack.
