Appliance Manual Appliance Manual

An impressive debut for this UK trio of progressive trance rockers. Combining the ambient rhythmic soundscapes of Tortoise with the hypnotic rock dynamics of Mogwai, Appliance Manual fill their sound full of warm analogue electronics and chiming guitars for an original moody groove. When their Krautrock influences take hold, songs propel themselves toward Trans Am jams, while melodic ambient tracks conjure the sweet hypnotica of Stereolab. (Mute)
