Hood - The Negatives
Melancholy and melodic, with almost whispered vocals, the negatives.... is one of the better tunes from Hood's current album, outside closer. Two new songs are included here; squint in the first light of day, thanks to its drum patterns, loops and effects, is like a less intense cousin of Radiohead's Climbing Up the Walls. These three tracks nicely capture Hood's subtle blend of pastoral sounds and experimental techniques.
N.B. CD Times would like to wish the band the best of luck in finding the crooks who stole money equal to the entire proceeds of the band's tour while Hood were on stage at a recent American show.
