Absent Sound It's All True

For the past few years, Absent Sound have been offering some of the more engaging music to come out of Winnipeg. The group’s latest shows them charting an absorbing course through diverse waters. Submerged melodies rise out of textured drones and then descend, leaving gentle echoes in their wake. The group’s playfulness is also in fine form as they deconstruct a rock’n’roll classic during "Sinking Out of Body” and turn it into a dizzying, off-kilter piece. Throughout its varied songs, It’s All True features the band’s most compelling marriage of loops, samples and digitally delayed guitars. (No List)
