Seattle's Engine Kid start off mellow, with Windshield, then erupt. Each song starts out with either tripped-out laziness or abstract heaviness, drifts off for at least 4 mins., then explodes in a whirlwind of mesmerizing drum tempoes and off-beat harmonics. The vocals range from spoken, to softly sung, to harsh screaming. The singer/guitarist Greg Anderson can be foung nowadays in Goatsnake. A masterpiece.
