The US alt-rock trio Some Gifts released the LP Win Instantly yesterday.
The second of the eleven tracks Stop Acting Crazy finds Some Gifts much slowed down from their introduction last year, although lacking none of the power, as the music slows from light-fly weight boxing pace to a heavy-weight slugging match.
That isn’t to say the music is any the less enjoyable as Some Gifts use the more generous spaces to thread Stop Acting Crazy with an immediately captivating chord progression of semi-tones which can bear as much repeat as possible to fit into the just under four and three quarter minute track. The percussion is also able to develop more expressive sympathy leaving the bass to hook the jabs to the mid-riff as the vocal retains its familiar growl giving the composition a thoroughly enjoyable rough and tumble, which demands an immediate replay, if only to extend the sublime chords of the guitar and hear them once again just to confirm you really have fallen head over heels with a sound.
