Amps for Christ Every Eleven Seconds

Every Eleven Seconds takes consistency and curb stomps it into a whimpering heap on the roadside. With its combination of feedback noise, electronic bleeps, sitar melodies, folk music and other elements, Amps for Christ’s latest conveys the group’s knack for jumping wide chasms to visit dissimilar musical terrain. On Every Eleven Seconds, the effect can be disorienting at first due to the lack of continuity. Repeated listening, however, proves that the disc is both a challenging and engaging album, providing a range of surprises and reinforcing Amps for Christ’s ability to stretch sonic limits. (5RC)
