A nasty follow up EP to the Perfect Texture LP released earlier this year finds GELD in a more irascible and unhinged state. Soft Power expands on the band's vision of a freer form of D-Beat with noisier sounds, tighter dimensions, wilder visions and subtler experimentation with carefully placed nuances. Don't be tricked into thinking this is some sort of hippy dippy jam band bullshit though, every second of this is cruelly calculated and executed with the utmost care. Damn.
Americans and Canadians should be grabbing this from the dynamic duo at Iron Lung Records.
