The Windom Earle All-Stars 

A Series of Minor Personal Tragedies

The Windom Earle All-Stars
A Series of Minor Personal Tragedies
What is arguably the most exciting live act to surface recently in Halifax backs it up on record. Windom Earle, the Jeff Coll Five and Operation Impact arrived from PEI a few years ago and are featured interchangeably here. Stephan MacLeod is a creative force in all three. An ’80s retro drum-machine foundation is corrupted beautifully by eccentricity. Who knew the rhythmic power that lay in the phrase “Horrible physical features”? The instrumental “Screw Wave” has an obsessive-compulsive urgency in its groove. Windom Earle gives techno such a wedgie, it might be more human.
