1 - SGNLS
- 2 - (LP)
Finally a proper synth punk band! Phillys SGNLS follow in the tradition of bands like The UNITS rather than bands that are merely labeled "punk" by the distinction that they cannot play their synths properly. Live they are capable of synth heavy freakouts not dissimilar from HAWKWIND, HELDON or japanese psychedelic band OVERHANG PARTY, whereas on record they reel it in a bit and show us some real solid songs that should appeal to fans of everything ranging from DIGITAL LEATHER (Shawns Shattered era), LOST SOUNDS, THE SCREAMERS to WARSAW. "2" somehow showcases the bands ability to make a sound that is truly blurs the lines of synth-punk, industrial, psych, and krautrock while still holding a pop sensibility. It keeps you on the edge of your seat with so many peaks and valleys that all work so well together, somehow never seaming to go to deep in any one direction, yet at the same time the album is still very cohesive. It really is a masterpiece that must be listened to as a in its entirety (and maybe a few times in its entirety) to truly appreciate the varied sound and styles it merges while sounding effortless doing it.
