How I found out about Egyptr was my good buddy Zach from We Listen For You Tweeted me a minute ago telling me this album was “pure Fantano,” or something like that. I dunno about that. Maybe this is, like, in the 70-80 percentile. I’m just breakin’ balls.
Egyptr has some nice things going on with this self-titled LP. It’s a series of ten loud, cacophonous, angular post-punk tunes that have lead vocals that remind me of the Arctic Monkeys a bit. It’s certainly got a freakish energy to it that I like a lot.
The composition of these songs can be pretty interesting, too. The riffs are written to have such bulky shapes. Some of the intervals they play can be pretty dissonant as well, and horns are occasionally thrown in to add another sour element to the mixture.
This could grow on me.
