CD Review: Double Muslims

Errors of Menace (Laboratory Standard)

Double Muslims

"Errors of Menace" (Laboratory Standard)

The three jazzy art-rock songs on this 7-inch single ("Errors of Menace/Stupor Creek" b/w "Twice, But Once") are dense and focused—Eric Lee's staccato, single-note guitar lines mix dissonance and melody, with Jason Boardman providing tight, restrained drum beats and Marcelle Good covering the lower end with cello. Cerebral, heartfelt, and haunting.
