Calling Out
(weekwerk)
FemBots' fourth album has some hard-to-place sounds lurking within its densely textured arrangements. This strange quality becomes more understandable once you learn Calling Out was originally planned to be recorded using strictly homemade instruments. Bedtracks from those aborted sessions became the basis for what sounds like a not-so-run-of-the-mill rock album. It's like a less death-obsessed Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds taking a stab at doing a CanRock album. A solid set of songs that'll sound different when FemBots perform at Gus' Pub this Saturday---assuming they've left the homemade instruments at home.
