• raccoo-oo-oon Raccoo-oo-oon (CD, £13.75)

    label: Release the Bats

    Everything's coming to a end with the swansong from Iowa City's Raccoo-oo-oon. Following up 2007's critically acclaimed Behold Secret Kingdom, the final album takes everything up a notch and shows a band taking their last breath and laying down the last bricks in their fairly short history. More reminiscent of the freeform punk madness of The Cave Of Spirits Forever than the heavy outbursts from Behold Secret Kingdom, this album reeks of desperation and a feeling of going down with nothing to lose. A fucked up future-prog mayhem that is all over the place and at no known place at all at the same time. Minds are melting, new grounds are covered and things will never be the same. When the last track fades out and everything is over, the silence has never been so quiet before. Genuinely uncomfortable, desperate and just beautiful, this album will surely be remembered as the most important recording that Racco-oo-oon ever put to tape. A playtime of close to 75 minutes over 7 tracks. Everything's coming to a end with the swansong from Iowa City's Raccoo-oo-oon.
