A Tundra Tuesday, October 11, 2011
A Tundra has whittled away many of its noise and prog experiments in favor of a more pop-based approach. While their debut record ?Man or Woman Laughing Or Crying? flowed something more like a ?Choose Your Own Adventure? novel, their more recent sound, as featured in their recent ?Ides of Parch? album, trades some of these musical diversions for a more linear approach to arrangement. Melodic vocal threads with layers of harmony popping in and out intertwine with smart, but never obtuse, layers of instrumentation. Though the band has not totally forgotten its previous forays into deconstruction; bursts of noise or collage sometimes reappear with purpose into the support role of seasoning the songs when necessary.
