In all of their spastic and chaotic glory, Chicago dwellers Lower Automation is set to release their newest EP Shoebox Companion. Harbored beneath its title, Shoebox Companion offers up six tracks of wholly chaotic punk and math noise that make your head spin enough to the point where you think you’ve lost it. This fourteen minute release is a dizzying and brain bending one as your brain is going to have to do some mental acrobatics if it wants to keep up. Shoebox Companion is off kilter and the noise flies at you from all angles creating a sharpened vortex of calculated noise.
Shoebox Companion is a frenzied release as it throws you in to its cyclone of neck bending punk noise immediately. All of the elements and components that Lower Automation uses throughout each track mix well together creating an all together cohesive yet head spinning sound. Never are you able to escape the noise as one dizzying track begins once one ends burying you under droves of a well knit together metallic aural assault.
From beginning to end, Shoebox Companion is an excellent EP. Through it you are gifted to excellent musicianship and great highly memorable vocals. Each track within this EP are well crafted and well performed offerings of noise that you won’t be able to get out of your head. Shoebox Companion is an addicting and entirely engaging listen that draws you in from the very first minute onward. As noisy and chaotic as every track is, they are cohesive and as mentioned each component that Lower Automation has thrown in to their eclectic sound works well together to create a wholly unique and interesting sound.
Once Shoebox Companion concludes, you are left feeling as though you just got in a car crash. This is a whiplash inducing release through and through and it is entirely entertaining and memorable making this out to certainly be a mainstay on your rotation.
Shoebox Companion will be released July 27, 2018.
