MP3 REVIEW: The Illegal Wiretaps “Somnia Sessions Volume 3: Ideas and Fragments Left to Rot (B-Sides)”
The Illegal Wiretaps “Somnia Sessions Volume 3: Ideas and Fragments Left to Rot (B-Sides)”
This is another earlier casiotopia style release by The Illegal Wiretaps.In fact, according to the Band Camp page blurb, this was their seventeenth release in a period of eighteen months.Wow.Amazing.These guys are cranking out songs faster than I can review them, but I’m trying to catch up.Inside all of these reviews, you will read about the journey that this band is undertaking, but also about the journey that I am taking as a writer trying to review all of this music and not keep my website (complete) Illegal Wiretaps fan site.
This album has what I like to call the robot vocals, static beats, almost techno beats at times while at other times as calm and soothing as waves crashing in an ocean, and oh yeah, a cover of the Rusted Shut song “Fuck It”.
We end on a song called “Jellyfish Gentle Pillows of the Sea” (Though I don’t recommend putting your head anywhere close to one) which takes us out in a “Fragile” era Nine Inch Nails type of industrial rock way.Stellar.
