!!! - Louden Up Now mp3 flac

Louden Up Now sees the group continue to meld funky dance rhythms with post-punk influences.

Shop Vinyl and CDs and complete your !!! collection. Although only 2 tracks are attributed as being Maurice Fulton remixes, I am sure that his influence can be found in other parts of the album - the best trach (IMHO), Hello? Is This Thing On?, has an electro-disco stab in the intro that only Maurice Fulton seems capable of producing, elsewhere snares, hi-hats and kick drums co-ordinate in perfect synchronicity to build energy before the bass and guitar kick in to great effect - very Maurice Fulton, very nice!

On Louden Up Now, !!! have progressed toward a slicker, more disco-oriented sound. The band generally forgo the sloppy horn lines and heavy punk riff backbone of their debut, opting instead for slow, trance-like builds. At the heart of the album is a suffocating, dark electro-acoustic disco smog that recalls Black Devil's 1979 Disco Club EP, as well as Larry Levan, Walter Gibbons, and Arthur Russell's more pessimistic contributions to the disco underground. All of which is to say that the production on Louden Up Now is particularly commendable

Louden Up Now is easily the best record to come out of the movement; its ten tracks are filled with fervor, hooks, passion, and power. And unlike many of their peers, !!! have politics. Angry, righteous politics. Antiwar, anti-Giuliani, anti-Bush and Blair, and proud of it. It is like a blast of fresh retro air to have a band not just updating the sound but carrying over similar ideals as well. That being said, this is still a dance album.

Louden Up Now sees the group continue to meld funky dance rhythms with post-punk. Two singles were released from the album: "Hello? Is This Thing On?" and "Pardon My Freedom" while the 2003 single "Me and Giuliani Down by the Schoolyard" was included on the release.

Louden Up Now. Score. Weird, because everyone’s got !!! – pronounced chk-chk-chk – pegged as the trendiest of New York hipsters, loose-hipped.
