Fuck Buttons - Tarot Sport


Tarot Sport is U.K. electronic/noise band Fuck Buttons sophomore album, following hot on the heels of last year’s terrific debut, Street Horrrsing. The new album sounds like a more fully realized, mature work from the duo. Songs like “The Lisbon Maru” and “Olympians” may share moments that recall their past work, but the absence of the unintelligible, scream-o vocals that pervaded Street Horrrsing gives the new album a sound that’s often more graceful than nightmarish. It’s not so much an improvement necessarily, but rather just a difference - one that makes the songs more inviting than those from its predecessor. Regardless of this new found approach (no doubt a result of working with a producer as seasoned as Andrew Weatherall) Tarot Sport doesn't forget to be dense, challenging, and noisy - all definite attributes in the case of Fuck Buttons. It’s also an expansive and deeply hypnotic work that flows seamlessly from track to track, and will undoubtedly continue to attract fans of both left-of-center indie-rock and electronic/trance music.

Yes, Tarot Sport is definitely a little different but just as good as the debut. Really enjoying this album.
