O'Brother: Endless Light

Album Review

Experimental rockers tone down the riffs but expand their horizons

While O’Brother’s first two records were a classy amalgamation of sludgy riffs and adventurous, meandering post-rock, their latest opus dramatically tones down the former, yet still possesses enough murky undercurrents and rough edges to appeal to the metal crowd, as well as fans of Swans and Mogwai.

An immediate conjuring of drums and baneful tones summons Slow Sin, setting the scene with its subtle, brooding power, before the dissonant Your Move heralds in the first shades of light.
