Ten More Pieces
Only twenty months after the released of their first longplayer Ten Pieces, Berlin’s isoscope are back with their sophomore album Conclusive Mess. For those who knew the debut release, here are the main differences between Ten Pieces and Conclusive Mess: the new album is much more coherent, and it makes sense as a unit; the soundscapes are more cohesive; and finally, isoscope have gotten more freaky in a very positive way.
Next Level Dreaming
The sound that isoscope present on their sophomore longplayer comes from a hot melting pot of styles and ideas. One may discover krauty and heavy Alternative Rock à la VUG here and there, while in other movements the band provides intelligent yet body-moving Post Punk and Math Rock. isoscope are rough, emotional, sensitive, and destructive. The sheer energy of this album can hardly put to words. It reaches from the diverse atmosphere of the Dream trilogy to the psychedelic Indie Rock ballad Keep on building, Boys and up to the spiky Math Rock and Noise attacks of Tabula Rasa.
Embrace the Mess
The album’s title could not fit better. What isoscope present here is a complete deconstruction of music together with a successful reattachment of the pieces. The result is a piece of art that drips with post-genre beauty. isoscope have combined their and bundled their forces, and they present a Conclusive Mess in its ideal form.
